Trade Lind for Hellickson?

Postby rangersfan » Wed Jun 08, 2011 4:34 pm

Hey, so I am in desperate need of pitching. I seem to have a plethora of good hitting OF, so I am thinking of offloading one of them. The person I want to trade from is in an opposite situation. I'm in a Yahoo H2H league, where there are as many hitting categories as pitching.
Categories are: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS; IP, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP.

I am currently holding Lind on the DL (I know, I've missed his comeback streak). Because of his streak and his apparent return to 09 stardom (which helped me win the league that year), I think I can get good value for him. Do you think I should do Lind for Hellickson/do you think he will take the trade? I wouldn't mind going for Lincecum, but I wouldn't know who to offer for him. Please let me know if you see any other seemingly good offers that I can make.

My lineup is:
(C) Carlos Santana
(1B) Prince Fielder
(2B) Rickie Weeks
(3B) Jhonny Peralta
(SS) Troy Tulowitzki
(OF) Jay Bruce
(OF) Drew Stubbs
(OF) Justin Upton
(DH) Jose Reyes
(BN) Domonic Brown
(DL) Adam Lind (I haven't taken him off since he came back)
Hiroki Kuroda
Zach Britton
Rickey Nolasco
Jonathon Sanchez
Matt Harrison
Chad Billingsley
Justin Masterson
Jonathon Papelbon
Ryan Madson

His Lineup Is:
(C) Russel Martin
(1B) Justin Smoak
(2B) Brandon Phillips
(3B) Chase Headley
(SS) Starlin Castro
(OF) Matt Joyce
(OF) Josh Hamilton
(OF) Michael Morse
(DH) Nelson Cruz
(DL) Pablo Sandoval
Zach Greinke
Jaime Garcia
Tim Lincecum
Brandon Morrow
Jeremy Hellickson
Yovani Gallardo
Madison Bumgarner
Jose Valverde
Kevin Gregg

I love Hellickson, but with Lind's power surge you MAY be able to get a more established starter from a person that is lacking offense/HRs/OFs. I have Hellickson and PRAISE him, but I try to overlook the fact that he may be shut down early since he's a rookie.

Lind is a beast, no way you do that. See if you can snag Kung Fu Panda from him on the cheap and an arm.

Lind for his Gallardo and Kung Fu Panda or Lincecum straight up.
