TELL ME GUTS FOR GLORY? *WHIR*

Postby Seanyfever » Sun Jun 10, 2012 6:59 pm

LEAVE A LINK AND I WILL GET YOUR ON THE REBOUND!!!

This is somewhat on the table right now... We have discussed this on more than one occasion.... Sometimes additional names get pulled in. I have a great squad on paper and honestly my offense is the one holding me up some weeks. Likely because Longo and Ellsbury on DL. Trout has helped a ton. Lincecum is really wearing on my patience, and I was willing to wait, but I am getting ready to bail.

I hate passing on Fielder with some questions on Albert, but he seems to be putting himself enough... though there is still 100 pt difference in their OBP. CC just seems to make me think I want to take my chances with Albert instead of Timmy. What are your thoughts? on suggested or feel free to suggest a scenario it works for me.

Pujols, Fielder, and Lincecum must be traded before next spring. I am sitting third in division and sixth overall where top eight teams go in. He is sitting first in his division opposite me and tied for first overall.

HIS:
PUJOLS, CC >>> with maybe Holland, Oswalt

MY:
FIELDER, LINCECUM >>> with maybe Feliz, Teheran

I'd rather have Pujols than Feidler, and I'd rather have CC than Lincecum.

I would take it. I Like Pujols to keep coming around and I like CC a lot better than Lincy. SO I like it for you. I would give up Teheren and ask for Holland back.

thanks for your help with mine

I think you should go for it. Pujols seems to be turning it around while Lincecum is showing no reason to trust him (5ER again today). I say go ahaead and make the trade especially since you have to trade both Fielder and Lincecum by next spring anyway.

I would do it ... I like Pujols and CC to be strong down the stretch. Lincecum is really pissing me off too. Maybe I should try to shop him :)

I would definitely suggest doing this trade. CC is still CC, and I have no problem grabbing him for the next 3 years. Pujols, also, is still Pujols, despite that awful start. He has been a top 15 player over the past month, and doesn't seem to be looking back, especially since Trout sets the table so well (a great combo on a fantasy team, I now have both as well).

I'm just not buying what Tim Lincecum is selling this year. I don't doubt that it will be back in the future, but when? And Prince is great... but he's no Albert Pujols.

Do the deal!

Help with mine?

Thanks for the help on mine. I think we gotta be honest and compare the total package. In my opinion, looking at potential numbers for the rest of the season, CC > Lincecum and Fielder = Pujols. There is no reason to believe that Pujols can be just as, if not more, productive than Fielder. They are both top tier, elite hitters. I feel that one person's personal opinion of one or the other is the only thing that separates the two. You could make a viable case either way. As far as the pitchers are concerned, there is NO case. Lincy just doesn't have it and recently gave up 4 runs in PETCO against SAN DIEGO. As Matthew Berry said, "If you can't start him against the Padres in San Diego, when CAN you start him??" And that's a great question. CC, meanwhile, is still a top 15 pitcher at worst. He is money and pitches for the Yankees. He has good to great ratios and will rack up the wins. I see nothing stopping you from doing this deal. Hope this helps!

I would do it, Puljos and Fielder is pretty much a wash in my opinion, and right now you just don't know what to expect with Lincecum, while C.C and the yanks have been playing extremely well recently, so I would do it.

Please help

THanks for the help with mine.

I would do this trade. Pujos is still solid for the next 3 years and though Fielder is good, I do not think will out perform Pujos over the next 2 years. (I would trade Pujos next year though). I think CC is much better than Lince. Lince looks lost and I would hate having him on my team b/c you cannot drop him.

I think you do the deal. Pujols is hitting well, so him for Fielder may actually be somewhat of an even swap. But CC is a much better deal than Lincecum.
Thanks for helping me out.
