Thanks for helping with mine. The original deal is no good IMO.

This deal sounds about right to me: Lincecum/Cespedes for McCutchen/Danks.

Don't sell low on Lincecum.

thats crazy....lincy is 10x better then danks even with only topping out at 90

and cespedes can be just as good as McCutchen or even better. Cespedes will have a 30/30 season and have more rbis the Mccutchen.

Two separate issues here. One is buying a bit low on McCutchen, which I would definitely do. The other is selling low on Lincecum.

If you're wanting to sell low on Lincecum then maybe you try the Lincecum/Cruz/someone (though I doubt Roberts is enough to get that done, maybe Lind or Cespedes).

If you don't want to sell low on Lincecum then I'd try doing Cruz/someone lesser for McCutchen/someone lesser. Maybe Cruz/Lind for McCutchen/Mark Reynolds? That'd be upgrading your starting lineup.

I like this one also. I think Lincecum's problems will only continue. His velocity is down and he is not nearly as dominating as he was a few years ago.

I might swap Cespedes out for Cruz, while his hype is still at his highest. I think he will regress once the league figures him out,

I agree that Lincecum is much better than Danks regardless.... but McCutchen is a top 15 bat, you're going to have to give up something of value for him. I'm just worried that Lincecum has been pitching through a shoulder problem. When you see a drop in velocity like this (3 to 4 mph) over a prolonged period of time... it just doesn't sit well with me for someone his age.
