I like this trade for you, and I would prefer to trade Trumbo over Gardner. This immediately changes your OF position into a position of great strength with Kemp, Holliday, and Garnder (who is underrated in my opinion). Additionally, the news that Lincecum decided to stop throwing sliders in order to preserve his arm is troubling as the slider was one of his best pitches. This might not be a sign of impending doom for Lincecum, but could still affect him in a negative way. Take the deal.

I like this trade for you, especially if your in a H2H league. Hitters and much more important than starters in that format, which would make Holliday stand out in that deal.

I don't think this is an upgrade at all.

I think your moving the best player in the deal, Timmy "The Freak" Lincecum who will probably have a burr up his saddle, with Cain getting all that doe, I expect a Big Season. As he will need to get paid at seasons end.

keep Timmy, unless if you really feel the need to upgrade your OF. I'd keep tim personally.
