JUST TRADED FOR LINCECUM IN KEEPER LEAGUE

Postby smithmn » Wed Jul 27, 2011 6:22 pm

Hey guys,

I am really struggling in my 10-team H2H 5x5 league. I am currently 4-10-1. I really don't have a shot at the playoffs. So, I am trying to put together a team that will compete next year. I just pulled a trade for Tim Lincecum, and I honestly feel like it was a great deal for me - but I'd like to see what you think.

I Trade: Justin Masterson, Heath Bell, Adam Jones
I Get: Tim Lincecum, Brandon League

The guy I traded with wants to win this year, and Jones will start for him in the outfield and he desperately needed a closer. For me, it wasn't too tough giving any of those guys up. I picked up both Masterson and Jones off waivers, and didn't plan on keeping either. I now have surefire keeper, top five starter in Lincecum.

C - Geovanny Soto
1B - Gaby Sanchez
2B - Dustin Ackley
3B - Ryan Zimmerman
SS - Jimmy Rollins
OF - Jacoby Ellsbury
OF - Mike Stanton
OF - Michael Morse
UT - David Ortiz

SP - Tim Lincecum
SP - Jon Lester
SP - Tommy Hanson
SP - Trevor Cahill
RP - Neftali Feliz
RP - Fernando Salas (going to add)
P - Ricky Romero
P - Kyle Lohse
P - Ryan Dempster
P - Bartolo Colon

How did I do?

That was a pretty darn good deal for you. A top 5 SP for two guys that came off the WW and a closer. Excellent job.

I've rarely seen a better executed trade. You got a great keeper for guys you picked up throughout the year. You struck at the perfect time, and were able to provide exactly what the other owner needed, and somehow pried Lincecum off him. Good move.
