** Updated ** Lincecum trade

Postby triple3play » Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:12 am

Would you trade my Middlebrook and Wade Miley for his Lincecum in my H2H points dynasty league? I know its lopsided right now but Im not a real believer in Miley and at 3b I already have McCab, HanRam, Sandoval, Lawrie. Good SP is very important in this league, so Id be hoping for a major rebound from Lincy

I would do that. Sucks to lose Middlebrooks in a Dynasty but this is a steal for you.

I offered this trade a few weeks ago and it was rejected. I wake up this morning to the same trade offered back to me! There is nothing I hate more then when some rejects a trade, then things don't go they're way so they come back and try to offer it again. I generally just reject it out of spite. But what should I do here? Middlebrooks is basically the starting 3B now and raking, and Miley has been rolling and making me a believer. Lincecum on the other hand has still sucked. I'm leaning towards rejecting it, right?

What was different a few weeks ago when you wanted Lincecum? He wasn't pitching well then either. It seems if you liked it enough to offer then, it would still be something you like today (hard feelings aside). And you certainly can spare the extra 3B.

If you reject it out of spite, you're only hurting yourself here. Lincecum has been a star for years, and I'm inclined to think that at some point he will return to form. It might not be this year, though, but in a dynasty league I think this deal is a no brainer. I'd take this deal every time.

Thoughts on mine?

You have to take the deal, although the guy is taking advantage of the Middlebrooks/Youk situation a bit with his timing. Regardless, the possible value you get here demands an accept.
