One of the guys in my league is trying to get rid of Lincecum. I'm attempting to use him as leverage to get Cano, who I think/hope is in buy-low territory. His current offers are
A) Lincecum for Bruce
B) Lincecum and Cano for Bruce and Longo
C) Lincecum and Cano for Bruce and Stanton
A) and C) both seem like an obvious No. B) is tempting, but I read Bruce as better than Lincecum and Longo as only slightly worse than Cano. I don't think he'll swallow a straight Longo for Cano trade, but it might be worth trying.
Anybody care to pick apart my assessment, or come up with a counter-offer that I'm missing? Maybin and Tabata are both on waivers, so I have some room with the OF, though no free replacement for power.
