Since I am a more offense-minded person, I would keep Lincecum but let Hamels go so you can use three spots on bats. Injury risk always seems greater for those top-flight pitchers anyway, and Hamels is no stranger to that.

You are in a tricky situation with Arod there. I might be tempted to let him go and take Fielder, Kemp and Phillips instead. In the end though, I have to believe Arod will get back to form, and be of much greater value to your team (in the long run) over the others. Therefore, if it were up to me, I pick:

Lincecum
Arod
Fielder
Kemp

Hate to throw Hamels back, but you gotta here... I know arod has some time before hes back, but its way to risky to throw him back to the wolves and let someone else reap his late season benefits...

offer some help?... viewtopic.php?f=29&t=371102&p=2978315#p2978315

i gotta believe in what bazzy wrote in that you can't justify not keeping arod, because of his track record, even if it's for a shortened amount of time this season.
