Frustrating Pitcher Swap: Who Wins?

Postby pmstick » Wed Aug 14, 2013 11:51 pm

Lincecum or Kris Medlen?

I have Medlen in a pitcher-heavy points league: wins 10, losses -3, Ks 2 ea., CG 15, SO 20, NH 20.

The only time I start him is when he's a 2-start pitcher and he never earns me huge points but never does too bad. Timmy Lince would be higher-risk higher-reward. Both have been pitching well up until Lince's stink bomb tonight, after which the owner of him proposed this trade to me. He needs an RP and Medlen is RP eligible.

I would much rather own Medlen, a few years younger plenty of time to grow into a low end ace or be a top shelf mid rotation starter. Besides, he's hitting the time of year where he pitches his best. He's not been too bad as of late either. No chance I'd want the Freak Show now LOL.

I would stick with Medlen. Since its a pitcher heavy points league, the fact that Medlen is pitching for the much better team is significant. Lincecum is too up and down, plus he is pitching on a last place team at the moment.
