Trade Lincecum for Myers?(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Tue Apr 17, 2012 5:10 pm

NL-only league, 23 man rosters, 7 keepers per year, auction league, 260 dollar cap, 5x5 roto type league.

I have been offered Brett Myers for my Timmy. The only reason I am kinda considering this is because I need a closer and Timmy has looked so bad. Should I do it or counter for Myers and another starter? My Roster: Plus he has the following arms: Bass, Bills, Estrada, Casilla, Romo, Richard, Myers, Lopez, Lilly.

Don't do it. You don't need a closer THAT bad. Plus myers is on a bad team so he wont get you a ton of saves

No, absolutely not. I wouldnt trade Lincecum straight up for ANY closer, let alone Brett Myers.

NO! Even if Timmy goes down for the year, he's a keeper so he's worth more than a mediocre-to-poor closer on a bad team.

I'm going to fourth that. Im usually the guy that tries to look at the other perspective, but this would just be insanity.

I'd graciously tell him you aren't interested but thanks for the offer, but I wouldn't do any counters. That's pretty off-base to start the trading. He might just be interested in fleecing people and not in fair trades. No sense in wasting time. You could hit him back for a trade later.

Lincecum's bad luck has been brought upon mostly by how poorly his defense has been playing around him. I know a drop in velocity is a concern but this is a keeper and Timmy is just too good to give up for a closer. Work the waivers and find a closer.

Negative. You would regret that... especially since Meyers is already being shopped around.
