I wouldn't do it. You are giving up too much and both Garza and Romero are better than Timmy at this point, especially Romero. I'd stay put especially since I think Youk is gonna have a down year and I like LaHair as a sleeper.

please help

Take Lincecum, landslide to me. Romero/Garza are still mid tier guys, Lincecum is a proven fantasy ace, wouldn't be swayed by two weeks here.

unless hes masking a shoulder or elbow injury. Ill take my chances with guys that Im pretty sure are healthy over someone that is losing velocity and having a hard time locating due to a "mystery"

Don't do it! I would take Romero over Lincecum, no question about it, given Tim's horrible start to the year. Youk's best days are behind him, yeah he still has value, but he's not as serious a chip as he used to be.

An unhealthy starter wouldn't have been trotted out to get rocked throughout spring training/April and wouldn't have started throwing a ton of sliders again like he did in his last start. 2.64 xFIP so far too. :-)

Just was offered a semi-similar trade in my league. I'm leaning toward taking it, I think you should too.

Mind you the Freak won back to back Cy Youngs, recently. That sorta thing is how you justify this risk.

Garza AND Romero is too much to give up. That package should be able to get you a SP without the concerns. Someone like Lee, Hamels.. etc.

TIm doesn't look the same, the drop in velocity is too much of a risk to do this.
