14 Team H2H Cats. 3 Keeps This guy has been shopping McCutcheon almost violently and it seems like too good an opportunity to pass up.
He offered: McCutcheon
I Give: Lincy Cruz
I told him no and he has been desperate to make a deal since.
My Roster: C Soto 1B Tex 2b Roberts SS Scutaro 3b Lawrie OF Stanton Cespedes Cruz Util Ortiz Bench Lind DL Utley C. Young
My Pitching consists of: Lincy, Hamels, Strasburg, Sale, Scherzer, Santiago, Betancourt
His Team C Ruiz 1b Laroche 2b Pedroia SS Cabrera 3b Aramis OF Pence LoMo Mccutch Util Austin Jackson Bench Maybin Pagan Reynolds
His Pitching consists of: Lester, Ubaldo, Papelbon, Clippard, Danks, Peavy He has Pedroia who he said he would shop and Asdrubal. Think I should try to swing an offer to get either of the two? If so what'd I offer?

the other owner isn't shopping muccutchen violently if he asks for lincecum and cruz in return.
i think the problem with moving lincecum is that people will want a discount based on his current start. he did get a W today with 8 Ks in 5IP, but he got out of the fifth on a really nice defensive double play. if you have faith in lincecum as i do, then i don't think moving lincecum now is the best idea unless you can get close to draft day value.
if you are targeting mccutchen, then i think it's fine to offer him a replacement like cruz (injury risk) or cespedes (strikeout monster). but lincecum on top is far too much. i might suggest a lincecum for mccutchen trade, but you have too many OFs. stanton, cespedes, cruz, and young (when he returns) are all must starts in your league.
i think your team is better served if you get pedroia or a cabrera. we need to see the other team's roster to narrow the trade possibilities. i think you should give at least one OF to get a MI, but with 3OF spots only people might not be in need.
sorry, not sure what to say except that the other owner's original offer sucked.
I agree with the poster above that he isnt violently shopping McCutchen if he's offering a trade as lopsided as Lincecum and Cruz for McCutchen. I wouldn't sell on Lincecum because of a few bad outings. He looked good today and should continue to look good going forward. I think you should go after Cabrera and Pedroia. What does his roster look like?
You can probably get Asdrubal for decent price because he was just heating before he went on the bereavement list, and Pedoria would help you but putting those plus McCutcheon might put the price too high. I would sell high on Cespedes while it lasts and if you still don't trust Lince put him out there too. But really you don't need McCutcheon you have enough OFs already. Go after Pedoria or Asdrubal or both because those players can help you more.
I love Austin Jackson and his value is real low right now, see if he will throw him into a deal...i think you should go after Pedroia.
Honestly I'm not a Lincecum fan because although he does usually go on a 1-2 month tear, i dont like the fact that their usually accompanied by 3-4 terrible starts and those could possibly come when you're trying to make a playoff push so with him its a hit or miss. He is a great pitcher just lacks some consistency i like in my pitchers.
If you could Swing Pedroia/McCutchen/Jackson for Lincy/Cruz/Cespedes (hate his Ks like the previous poster said)
That would be good IMO.
thanks for lookin at my post
