Our scoring categories are :

W, L, CG, Shutouts, SV, ERA, WHIP, K's, Hr allowed

My team:

1b-Joey Votto
2b-Dustin Pedroia
3b-Jose Bautista
ss-Hanley Ramirez
of-Ben Zobrist
of-michael bourn
of-Adam Jones
util-Justin Upton
util-Edwin Encarnacion
bench-Aramis Ramirez
DL-Evan Longoria

SP-Tim Lincecum
SP-Cole Hamels
RP-Aroldis Chapman
RP-Huston Street
P-Scott Downs
P-Brett Myers
P-C.J. Wilson
Bench-Wade Miley
Bench-James McDonald
Bench-Daniel Hudson
DL-Brandon Beachy

I just got done doing a mega deal trade (I feel like I got the better of it, you tell me) of Hanley Ramirez and Jose Bautista for Chris Sale, Santiago Castilla, JJ Hardy, and Adrian Beltre.

I was out of town with limited internet access and did not realize that scott downs had lost the closer role out in LA. I am going to drop him for Marmol.
Some SP's avaialable are:
Ryan Dempster, Ryan Vogelsong, Matt Moore, Yavonni Gallardo (just dropped a few minutes ago), Mat Latos, Colby Lewis, Andy Petite, Shaun Marcum, MAx Scherzer.

No it is not time to cut Tim Lincecum. This must be a 10 team league though? or maybe even an 8 team league?

There are so many good SP'ers on your FA it is crazy. If I was you I would prob cut Miley for either Gallardo, Latos, or Marcum.

All 3 of those pitchers will most likely out produce Miley for the ROS.

Miley should be the first drop and I would probably use his spot to just stream pitchers. With that much talent on the WW just play the matchups instead of trying to pick just one.

With that much talent on WW maybe I drop Linc because he might not get picked up. Personally I would probably hold off until the all-star break and then think about it again.

Thanks for the help. I should have said that Miley was on my roster purely as a stream pitcher for tonight since he has a favorable matchup. My thought is to use that spot to stream a sp and use my open roster spot on one of the more established vets out there, or maybe stream both.

Thanks again.

Yes. Totally cut him Lincecum, and here's why I think why.
His 5IP, 5ER (2HR) stinker against Seattle was the final straw in my opinion. His barely-over-2.00 K/BB ratio is awful, especially for him. And c'mon, your league's free agent SPs are good!
If Tim turns things around, your options will perform well enough so that you're not losing much at all. I mean, Tim's the gamble at this point. After 15 or so starts, Ryan Vogelsong and Colby Lewis have proved themselves this season. Why wait for the All-Star break? So that you can get another lousy start or two out of Tim? He's just a pitcher, there's no need to play it this safe. I vote to take action now.
