Would You Trade Hamels/Belt for Lincecum?

Postby rasto21585 » Sun Apr 10, 2011 12:36 am

So in my 20 team h2h dynasty league, I was offered tim lincecum for my cole hamels and brandon belt. I think this is a solid trade for my but i am worried that my offense may take a hit. Should I take this deal or stick with what I have. Team is below.

Jump on this trade.... like right now...

You're hitting is not going to take a hit from losing Belt... at least not this year... And if you're really worried about it, you can trade Kershaw or Lincecum depending on who you like better to upgrade your bat... Cause in a 20 team league, i'm sure someone is dying for one of those arms... right now with Tim's arm you could prob get a CarGo or Adrien Gonzalez...

Don't do it. You have a fantastic team for a 20 team league. Your pitching is set for now and the future with Hamels, Kershaw, and Lester. Belt will be a fantastic hitter someday, and to be honest in most leagues Lincecum really isn't a significant upgrade over Hamels. In my eyes, you are a championship contender now and in the future, so don't fix something that 'aint broke. Trading away a future perennial all-star for a minor upgrade in starting pitching, something you are already set in, is counter-intuitive.
