The Great Debate: Tim Lincecum

Postby jasonpm311 » Sun Aug 12, 2012 8:59 pm

A question we've all been asking: is Tim Lincecum a buy or a sell?

I've seen conflicting arguments.

Arguments to buy: .330 BABIP; low strand rate; still striking out guys moderately well; great numbers since AS break (2.72 ERA, 1.21 WHIP)

Arguments to sell: overall numbers terrible; too many walks still; decreased velocity; crappy changeup

What do you think? If there's no general answer, is he worth trading for, say, Chase Headley and AJ Burnett, or should I hang on to Lincecum with the hope/expectation that he turns it around?

He is improving. If you sell now, you'll see low. I would buy low for sure - not sell.
