Which solid/headcase SP is best?

Postby Fantasy GM » Sun Jul 15, 2012 3:01 am

I play in a H2H points league. I own Tommy Hanson but another owner told me both Anibal Sanchez and Tim Lincecum could be had for Hanson. Which of the three SP are best?

-Hanson isn't the ace we thought he'd be a couple season ago. He does good-but-not-great most times he takes the mound. A lot of 6 or 7 IP, 3 ER outings.
-Sanchez is similar. More K's but gives up a few more runs overall too.
-Lincecum has been a trainwreck pretty much all season. But can he turn it around?

I do the deal, Sanchez isn't far off of Hanson. & maybe Lincecum bounces back, good start v HOU, granted Houston. But nonetheless, Do it.

Hanson may have a slight edge over Sanchez but I actually think it's a fairly even trade straight up without Lincecum. The big difference between Hanson and Sanchez right now are just the Wins and I think Wins are overrated for a pitcher. Personally, I never base any SP decisions on Wins because the stat is based off of the entire team in a sport that rewards individual stats. A lot of the time, the stat comes down to luck (Nobody can tell me that Cliff Lee hadn't pitched well enough not to have a single Win before the All-Star Break).

The risk of that trade for the reward of Lincecum figuring it out makes it something that I'd pull the trigger on.

I'd easily take Hanson over Sanchez.

I should clarify - it's Hanson for either Sanchez or Lincecum, not both. Is trading Hanson for either Sanchez or Lincecum a good deal for me?

Keep Hanson. He'll have a better 2H than Sanchez. Tiny Tim is a huge flip of the coin. I traded for him 5 starts ago. Still not sure if I should regret it or think that he'll bear some semblance of his old Cy Young self. :^
