I would do it for sure. I like Lincecum and only think his outings will get better as the year progresses. As far as Dunn vs. Butler, just consistency from day-to-day would push me toward Butler. You know Dunn will have solid games against righties, but if you get a week where Dunn faces a few lefties, it's gonna kill you. But yeah, I'd definitely go for it.

Are you offering this or did you actually get this offer? If you are offering this, then it is an insulting offer. Lohse would barely be worth Butler let alone Linc. Now if you are being offered this, you better run and take it. Lohse can be a solid SP but nothing to what Linc can do and I think he will finish the year as a strong #2 plus Butler is doing very well and I think he could end up surprising people.
