Trade my Jeter for Lincecum? WHIR,LL

Postby KaPluie » Sun May 20, 2012 1:37 am

I have Aviles, so I can play him at SS and slide Lawrie into 3B... plus my pitching could use an upgrade. What do you think about trading my Jeter for Licecum?

I like the moves you make to fill in the spot, but honestly the way Lincecum has been throwing it scares the sh*t outa me. Luckily for me I traded and got rid of him for basically Justin Upton which was a steal, but that was at the beginning of the year where people still had more hope than usual. The fact that getting jeter is probably fair sucks! Stay away from Lincecum in my opinion, but jeter isn't bad to give away. Lince's value is just sooo low.. He doesnt look the same. Maybe shop around for another pitcher. But if you have to I guessssss go for. Jeter has been hot too!

It's amazing how drastically perceived value can change in a year.

I would jump all over the opportunity to buy low on Lincecum. I wouldn't expect Jeter to maintain this level of production plus you have a replacement for him presently on your roster already. Yeah, Lincecum still comes with risk but you could still flip him later on if you're uneasy about hanging onto him.
