Picked Up Lincecum for pretty cheap, how'd i do?

Postby X-Factor611 » Sat Jun 23, 2012 11:33 am

So i was offered Tim Lincecum and Ryan Roberts for Colby Rasmus and Casey Janssen.

I figured it was a buy low on Lincecum, and sell high and Rasmus. I didnt exactly have a starting spot in my OF for him anyways.
And after accepting the trade, I dropped Roberts and picked up Alvarez.

Now my roster looks like this...

C- Carlos Ruiz
1st- Eric Hosmer
MI- Dustin Ackley
MI- Trevor Plouffe
3rd- Brett Lawrie
OF- Justion Upton
OF- Adam Jones
OF- Mike Trout
DH- Mike Moustakis
BN- Justin Smoak
BN- Pedro Alvarez
BN- JD Martinez
BN- Raul Ibanez
DL- Troy tulowitzki

SP- Clayton Kershaw
SP- Gio Gonzalez
SP- Francisco Liriano
RP- Kenley Jansen
RP- Frank Francisco
BN- Mat Latos
BN- Tim Lincecum
BN- Ricky Romero
BN- Jeff Samardzija
BN- Wei-Yin Chen
BN- Dave Robertson

how do i look?

and who should i move to improve my Middle Infield?

this is a non-keeper, roto league with the top 4 teams finishing in the money...
I'm currently in 7th, but am 8 points out of the money.

Not a bad trade, as long as you're comfortable with your RP. Rasmus is going to be WW material in a few weeks, IMO, and while we have seen no indicators that Lincecum is going to rebound, my gut tells me that he is. Personally I would try to sell high on Trevor Plouffe.

Help?

I agree that that is the kind of deal people should be making to buy low on Lince. I have no idea if he is going to turn it around this season, but it's worth a shot if you can get him for pennies on the dollar.
