It would be nice to have a lot more information to go along with this post. Is it a keeper/dynasty league or a redraft? What are the stat categories?
Given normal stat categories and a redraft setup, I'd go with the Carp/Werth side. Even in a redraft, I could see an argument for the other side depending on where your team is in the standings. If you're looking to play it safe, go with this pair. If you need upside, go with the other.
Speaking of upside, in any keeper league setting (unless contracts are involved, of course), I would much rather have the Lincecum/ Upton package. Without this context, I'll side with Lincecum and Upton anyway as either one of them could end up being top 3 at their position for the remainder of the season.
Please respond to my post and if you like, tell me to come back over here if you end up posting more information. Good luck. viewtopic.php?t=416465
oh sorry, its a 5x5 rotisserie league that is non-keeper redraft so I am solely going through the end of the second half with these guys
Team B - ESPN FBaseball - 5x5 Rotisserie, 10 teams
C- Carlos Santana 1B- Albert Pujols 2B- Chone Figgins 3B - Kevin Youkilis SS- Miguel Tejada OF - Matt Holliday , Jayson Werth, Adam Jones, Carl Crawford, Dexter Fowler UTIL - Ryan Howard, Michael Young
SP - Chris Carpenter, Javy Vazquez, John Lackey, AJ Burnett, Zack Greinke, Max Scherzer RP - Andrew Bailey, Brian Fuentes, Huston Street BN - Carlos Beltran*, Dan Uggla, VMartinez DL - Edison Volquez
I'd rather have Lincecum/Upton, though not by much. In both cases, I like the Lincecum/Upton side better (lincecum>Carp, Upton>Werth). I am a little wary of Werth being traded to a park that is not as friendly as Philadelphia, and that is probably where the biggest difference comes for me.
Looking at things more closely, and being able to understand your situation a little better than the last time I posted, I think Lincecum/ Upton is the way to go. Werth does scare me more than I realized at first. In addition to a trade away from that ballpark, I'm more concerned as to what kind of role he finds himself in. The Yankees have come up in rumblings about him and if that happens, I think he'll lose some ABs down the stretch, with Gardner stealing ABs from all 3 OF.
Lincecum and Upton have been disappointments thus far this year, but both have experienced some back luck and both have solid track records. Perhaps most of all, these two have the upside to be at the top of their position in terms of value from here on out.
Thanks for the help with mine yesterday, and sorry that I'm just getting to this now. Of course, I now have a new thread; I'd greatly appreciate your help again: viewtopic.php?t=416510
