Trade: Lincecum for Berkman / Walden...WHIR

Postby flaversaver » Wed Jun 01, 2011 11:57 pm

I acquire: Lincecum
Oppo acquire: Berkman / Walden

Standard yahoo roto league 5x5. I'm in 3rd place in a 12 team league with deep rosters (C, C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, CI, MI, OF X 5, UTL, BN X 5, RP X4, P X 5). I need Ks and steals for the most part, but power numbers are good and ERA / WHIP I'm already at peak. I'm usually very good at evaluating trades, but this one has me stumped. This trade would give me an extra roster spot to pick up another bat, at least until Panda and Davis come off the DL, but the waiver wire is very thin and I'm already speculating on Lawrie. One of my concerns is that my starters are injury prone - Bedard, Peavy, Oswalt. If they hold up maybe I can flip some starters down the road for a bat. While I don't expect Berkman to keep up his torrid pace, I do expect him to be a top 50 bat assuming he stays healthy. The wildcard here is Walden. All advice is welcomed.

Roster:
J.P. Arencibia - C
Wilson Ramos - C
Mark Trumbo - 1B
Dan Uggla - 2B
Kevin Youkilis - 3B
Erick Aybar - SS
Lance Berkman - CI
Elvis Andrus - MI
Carlos González - OF
Carlos Quentin - OF
Andre Ethier - OF
Rajai Davis - OF
Eric Young - 2B / OF
David Ortiz - UTL
Brett Lawrie - NA
Ike Davis - DL
Pablo Sandoval - DL

Drew Storen - RP
Jordan Walden - RP
Sergio Santos - RP
Neftali Feliz - RP
Clayton Kershaw - P
David Robertson - P
Eduardo Sánchez - P
Erik Bedard - P
Roy Oswalt - P
Bud Norris - P
Jaime García - P
Jake Peavy - P
Phil Hughes - DL

I was thinking that. I do like Walden as I think he will put up a Brian Wilson year, but then again I have 4 closers as of now. The problem is Feliz is sucking and Santos has zero track record. Lincecum got blown up by STL today.
