Verlander for Lincecum?

Postby AroundTheFur922 » Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:37 pm

12 team h2h keeper league. I would be giving up Verlander,Pedroia & a 3rd round pick for Lincecum, Neil Walker & a 4th round pick. I'm a huge Lincecum fan btw. Thanks for any advice in advance.

I'd pass on this deal. Lincecum is an upgrade on Verlander, yes, but not enough to justify the downgrade from Pedroia to Walker and the draft pick swap as well.

Agreed. Dont let the fact that your a big Lincecum fan sway your decision. This trade doesnt seem worth it to me. Stay put.

I would probably do it - with Pedroia's knee issues he may not contribute the rest of the season. plus in a keeper league you can excuse trading for guys you like - though you might try and swap the picks so you get the higher one.

I agree with the consensus on this one. Upgrade from Verlander to Lincecum isn't big enough to justify Pedroia/3rd round pick for Walker/4th round pick.

However, when deals are close, I sometimes take the worse end of the deal just because I want to take my favorite players. :*) but that's just me. :-D

Same here. If you love it, go for it. We are advising against it but I don't think anyone will be calling you a fool if you said you went for it.....
