Done deal I hope. I actually really think Sale is being undersold here, as he is a damn solid pitcher, but you are getting such elite talent, you cant turn it down. You may have to flip a hitter for a pitcher after this deal, but you are still gonna come out way ahead regardless.

I say do it. You should get great long-term value from all of those. Even if Lincecum bounces back, I think you come out ahead. If not, even better.

Thanks for help with mine.

Like some of the others, I am worried about the hit that your starting pitching would take but I would still do the deal and scour the free agent pool for an emerging starter or two.

Yes, do it...its a hit on your pitching, but you're getting two stud hitters back.

Yup, make the trade and see how your pitching pans out. You can always flip someone for a pitcher later on.

thanks

I absolutely pull the trigger on this deal. You are getting 3 very solid bats, and I always take a solid bat over a solid arm. That makes parting with Lincecum a little easier.
