TRADE: Lincecum for A-Gonz? WHIR Always

Postby war106 » Thu Jun 16, 2011 12:13 pm

Listen, I have this huge trade on the table in my league, which is a 10 team, H2H points league.

The trade is:

I trade: Adrian Gonzalez and Jhonny Peralta

I get: Tim Lincecum and Danny Espinosa

The problem with this league is that pitchers are favored HEAVILY in terms of points. For example:

Wins: 8 points
K’s: 1 point each
Complete Games: 10 point
Shutout: Another 10 points

Crazy stuff, because a pitcher like Lincecum can have a ton of points in a two-start week. (Assuming he turns things around) And I already have a stacked offense, in my opinion at least.

Anyway, so my team is in 9th place and I need to make a move. Is this a good deal for me?

Here’s my team:

C- Soto
1B- Pujols
2B- Figgins
3B- Youkilis
SS- Castro
CI- A-Gonz, Hosmer, Sandoval
MI- Ackley, Peralta
Chris Young
Matt Kemp
Brett Gardner
Domonic Brown

I would take this deal. You could use the help at SP and have enough bats to make up for what you lose in AGone.

I think you might be able to get a pitcher like Shields that in your point system would be Lincecum value without having to give up Gonzalez for him.
