Trade for Lincecum?

Postby EEE256 » Tue Apr 16, 2013 8:08 am

Guy in my league wants Gallardo. I know Gallardo usually starts slow and he may be trying to buy low. Thoughts on this offer?

Give: Gallardo, Holland, Freese
Get: Lincecum, Kimbrel, M. Young

Freese and Young are both injury risks but i do like Young's 2b eligibility. Kimbrel is obviously the best closer in the game, but i don't need a closer necessarily (though it is an upgrade). Also think its only a matter of time until Holland gets pulled out of the closer role. Thoughts? Is this worth it? If i did this, I would then try to trade one of my RP's to try and get a bat...

Any input would be appreciated. Thx

No thanks. It is all because of Linc, just haven't seen any good reason to be acquiring him right now.

You're getting the best player in the deal, Kimbrel, but you could probably do a little bit better. Young can't really be counted on for much power at this point in his career... He's almost a multi-positional Placido Polanco now and Lincecum straight sucks.

gallardo > lincecum [except for the month of april, gallardo is historically awful]
holland < kimbrel
freese > young [young has multiple eligibility but also on the wrong side of 35]

you need to get someone better for gallardo or freese to make it worth your time.
