I would never say don't trade him 100%, if the price is right anybody is worth letting go, but I would probably just keep him. Last year he didn't have as good of a year but it was still ok considering he was injured part of the year, and probably pitched through the injury a few times. In 2009 when he was not injured he had an impressive year just like he is having now. I say he keeps this up.

I think that he's legit, and could finish up with a decent amount of wins with an era in the high 2's or low 3's. But his strike out rates are really low, and he's playing extremely well right now, so it could be a good time to sell high if the price is right.

A trade in my league just went through - Jair Jurrjens and Gabby Sanchez for Tim Lincecum... It was a great sell high on Jurrjens, if that helps.

Wow, Lincecum for those two?

I would shop Jurrjens and see what you can get. Chances are an owner will be willing to pay more than he is worth.
