Buy Low on Lincecum? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Fri May 18, 2012 2:45 pm

Is Lincecum a buy-low target or a stay-away guy? This owner is frustrated with him so I might have a window. What would you offer?

Might try Romero and Smyly or Parker and see what he does.

i think he's a buy low candidate. we'd think nothing of this slump if it happened in july instead of the beginning of the season. his bb rate is concerning for sure but his k rate is nasty. i've watched almost all of his starts and i think he has improved every start. i have no idea what you could offer. i tried to offer brandon morrow and sean marshall in my league but didn't even get a response. the other owner might not give up on lincecum as easily as you might hope.

edit: forgot to mention that i wouldn't touch that lineup.it looks really good. so does your pitching. move a pitcher for a pitcher.

I agree, send him Romero and Parker and hope he accepts. He prob will if he is really frustrated with him.

Maybe Chapman instead of Parker. Big name, the other owner might bite at that.
