16-team h2h dynasty league.
I have been approached about trading Lincecum and not sure where I should value him. Is his value extremely low because of his poor finish last year? Or, is his value just fine with the assumption that he may have just been worn down?
Here is my team:
C- Ryan Doumit (800k)
1B- Billy Bitler (6/6/6/6 +7.5m option)
2B- Brandon Phillips (8/10/10)
3B- Brett Lawrie (10/10/10/10/10)
SS- Zack Cozart (600k/800k/1m/1.2m/1.5m)
LF- Josh Hamilton (11/11/11/11)
CF- Starline Marte (600k/800k/1m/1.2/1.5)
RF- Jayson Werth (6/6/6)
UT- Nelson Cruz (10/10/10/10)
BN: Nick Swisher (5/5/5), Justin Morneau (3/3/3 +3.75m option), Tyler Pastornicky (600k/800k/1m/1.2/1.5)
SP: Justin Verlander (16/16/16), Cliff Lee (14/14/14/14 +15.75m option), Zack Greinke (10/10/10/10), Tim Lincecum (12/12/12/15), Jake Peavy (2/2), Kyle Lohse (1.4), Alexi Ogando (3/3), Zach McAllister (600k/800k/1m/1.2/1.5)
RP: JJ Putz (5/5/5), Rafael Betancourt (5), Jose Valverde (5/5), Kyle Farnsworth (3)
What (if anything) should I focus on? I have dangled Tim Lincecum out, and I consider his value to be a bit degraded but not very much. I consider last season due to fatigue. He seemed to bounce back well in a reliever role, so I expect at least a good first half out of him. I have been approached by a team with interest, and am looking for advice on who to ask for.
Here are his players:
Carlos Santana (8/10/10/12/12). I like him, but seems a bit high on price wise?
David Ortiz (6m). Not sure I want to trade Lincecum for a one year player that is at the end of his career, even though he will provide some pop.
Miguel Cabrera (20/20/20/2020) I don't need a 3B but Miggy is Miggy. I would have to move Nelson to make room and salary space, so unlikely.
Asdrubal Cabrera (6/8/10/10). How much of an uprade over Cozart would he be when money is considered?
Matt Kemp (16/20/20/24/24) Doubful a package could be arranged.
Shin-Soo Choo (8/8) I like him, but his injury proneness lately is a concern and I expect Werth to do pretty well in that lineup.
Mike Minor (2/2)
Matt Harrison (800k) Nice value.
Patrick Corbin (2.3/1.3 +3.4m option) I like him and he has offered him to me int he past for other deals that I turned down.
Justin Masterson (3/3/3)
James McDonald (3/3/3 +4m option)
Doug Fister (2/2)
Jason Motte (4/4/4/4)
Greg Holland (800k)
Jonathan Papelbon (8/8/10)
Brian Wilson (5/5/5)
Wilton Lopez (800k)
Tony Sipp (800k)
Ernesto Frieri (4/4/4 +5m option)
I only have 27.4m left before the cap, and still have the FA/prospect draft to complete. I like my team, so not too worried about the cap, but a little extra room wouldn't be terrible. I am going for the championship this year as I think I have a very strong pitching staff (RP can use some help but not terribly concerned) and a good offense. Especially in a 16 team league.
Should I even try to make the above-mentioned manager an offer for Lincecum? Unless I send more then one player, I can only get on major leaguer in return to be at my 25 man roster. If I could package Lincecum and Cruz together, I would love to. But I don't see that happening because I would want Kemp or Miggy. Any suggestions?
