Lincecum/Kipnis for Cano/Scherzer? WHIR need advice tonight!

Postby Brainstorm » Sun Aug 14, 2011 8:33 pm

12 team 5x5 keeper, keep 10... i've been talking to an owner and got this offer of my lincecum and kipnis for cano and scherzer. I'm out of it this year so this is simply trying to load up for next year and going forward. I'd prob try to trade scherzer in the offseason for a draft pick as i don't see a keeper spot for him... thoughts? roster below

Cano is a top-10 fantasy player. Lincecum is in the top-20, probably the second or third best SP in fantasy (Halladay and Verlander being the only real competition, IMO). I will always take the bat over the arm, so my advice is make the deal.

I would try to keep Lincecum if at all possible. If you are not looking to keep Scherzer maybe try to get something done with Greinke, Beachy or Gallardo.

I wouldnt do it. Kipnis is going to be on Canos level in a few years and Lincecum is already a "freak" and Scherzer isnt much to write home about
