Trade Lincecum/Asdrubal for Teixeira/Billingsley? - WHIR

Postby jeffkoz12 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 10:26 am

I am lingering in the middle of the pack in a weekly H2H, 5x5 league. Had a horrible draft but made a few good trades to land Hanley, Bruce, and McCutchen.

Looking to add to my offense to make the climb to the top. Would this trade be good for me?

I give: Lincecum, Asdrubal
I get: Teixeira, Billingsley

WHIR!


(FYI, the other owner has Stephen Drew at SS, so he could use an upgrade. He also has Prince Fielder at 1B, so no need to send him a replacement for Tex.)



My Roster:
C Wieters
1B Miguel Cabrera
2B D.Espinosa
3B Youk
SS Hanley
OF Bruce
OF McCutchen
OF Gardner
UT C.Pena
UT AsCabrera
DL Prado

SP Linceum / Verlander / Greinke / Carpenter
RP H.Bell / Bailey / Walden / Salas
BN J.Chacin / Cahill / Wandy

I'd love the deal if you could get a better start back. Teix is always a big second-half player, I'm assuming you're not too high on Cabrera keeping up his pace, and it's a shame to see Lincecum go, although he hasn't been his normal self this year anyway.

What other pitchers does this owner have other than Billingsley?
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

^^ This. If you can get a better pitcher back its a great deal.

I'd do the deal as is anyway. You have Verlander, Greinke to lead your rotation. Tex would be a monumental upgrade to yourlineup. Asdrubal is expendable.

His starting pitchers:
Cliff Lee
Beckett
Pineda
Billingsley
Ricky Romero
Colby Lewis

I would love Cliff Lee, of course, but that wouldn't be a reasonable request.

***Update***

I made an offer:

I give Lincecum, Asdrubal, Heath Bell
I get Cliff Lee, Teixeira

Don't know if I will get a "yes" but I know this guy is looking for closers -- of which I have four.

I like this trade better for you. I would pull the trigger on the original trade, too.

Help with mine?
