Sabathia/Braun/Lincecum Trade

Postby dopkin » Thu Jul 21, 2011 1:03 pm

I give:
Brennan Boesch
Drew Stubbs
CC Sabathia
Jason Isringhausen

I get:
Ryan Braun
Tim Lincecum

Good/bad? Thoughts?


What I was thinking:
Braun is a stud. He would be a final piece to a bomb squad, I think. I need to dump offense before Wright comes off the DL. And Lincecum will outperform CC eventually, I think. Agree/disagree? Could I get a better pitcher maybe? He also had Jered Weaver, Clayton Kershaw, and Tommy Hanson as notable starters.


Currently in 1st place by 17 games.

Great trade for you. Anytime you can get a top 10 player for a bunch of middle of the road players it is a good deal for you.

Boesch and Izzy are basically non factors here. Braun and Lincecum are the two best players in the deal, so take this deal and run.

Izzy and Boesch were no doubt free agents adds in a 10 teamer. Izzy might get another save or three before Parnell takes over but he's basically worthless. WHY would he even do this trade and especially to the 1st place team. You did VERY well my man. ;-D
