I like it. Might say you're selling low on Lincecum, but that's not a bad idea right now. Grinkie is almost as good and Marcum isn't bad either. What closer would you be giving up?

I would wait to see how the San Francisco Giants closer thing pans out. If Romo becomes the closer, then definitely do the deal. However, if he doesn't you shouldn't because you may have issues every week getting saves.

On the surface, I'd make the trade, but it kind of depends on a few factors for me:

I see that Lincecum's contract ends in 2013, but when do Greinke & Marcum's contract end?
What closer are you talking about in the deal? I think you kind of need Kimbrel & Motte/Marshall for this year, so depending on who he's asking for & how long you can keep Greinke & Marcum for is fairly important.

IF you can pick the closer and you can keep at least Greinke till 2014 or later than I think i'd pull the trigger

thanks for the help with mine

I'd definitely do it. I'm all-out on Lincecum. There are too many articles out there discussing his velocity drop, gradually declining K-rate, etc, for me to get excited that he'll ever be an elite pitcher again.

Thanks for your help on mine!

I'd do it for sure. Greinke is a stud and Timmy's velocity issues have me worried. Get rid of him while you still can.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
