Tim Lincecum: "Freak" to "Chump"

Postby etl1692 » Mon Apr 16, 2012 11:03 pm

I'am now scared shitless. Trade Lincecum now unfortunately for cheap? Hope to god he gets better then trade him, with higher value? Hope he gets on track and dominates the rest of the year and keep em? Or say F*ck you Tim and drop him like a sack of bricks! (The last idea was a joke but thats how I feel right now!)

Don't trade now. Even if he's not the old Lincecum, he's better than he's pitching right now!

Lincecum has been shaky for awhile now. But as someone pointed out, Timmy at 75% is still better than most others at 100%. If you can get something that works for you, however, I would probably deal him and let someone else hope for a return to absolute dominance.

I think that he may be pitching through an injury. His fastball was topping out at like 91 tonight.

I would be trying to sell him low asap if I owned him. Throw him out there and see what his name value will get you.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I avoided Lincecum as I thought he was overrated and being drafted too high, esp. considering the team he plays for. I would certainly look to see what you can get for him. If someone is willing to pay a decent return on him based on his name, I would do it to rid myself of the problem. If not, you are sort of stuck with him as selling for a bag of rocks is not going to do anything for your team.
