First off, with Cespedes and Young back, and Harper/Trout exceeding all expectations, I have unexpected depth at OF. The Lincecum owner is trying to ditch him. I was offered this:
I give: Nelson Cruz
I get: Tim Lincecum

Should I take it? Should I try countering with somebody? Or just stay the hell away?

Also, I could use some RP/SP help elsewhere. We get three player adds per week, and right now I have all three. What changes would you make?
Here are the free agents:
-Scott Downs (on waivers)
-Drew Stubbs
-Alex Rios
-Justin Smoak
-Carlos Quentin
-Gordon Beckham (backup for Cano)
-Felix Doubront (on waivers)
-Brian Matusz
-AJ Burnett
-Francisco Liriano
-Bud Norris (on waivers)
-Hiroki Kuroda (on waivers)
-Edinson Volquez
-Brian Fuentes
-Trevor Cahill
-Jordan Walden
-Grant Balfour
-Carlos Marmol
-Justin Masterson
-Brad Lincoln
-Sergio Romo
-Chris Young (Mets)
-Anthony Bass

Man, this is a tough one. In year's past I would definitely have gone with Lincecum, based on the belief that he will get back on track. However, something just seems different this year. I think I would stay away from Lincecum. Cruz appears like he is finally figured a few things out and is crushing the ball (484 ft. homerun yesterday at ANA). That being said, if you decide to go with "The Freak" I wouldn't tell you that it's a bad move. Part of the fun of fantasy baseball is taking chances and the risk/return for Lincecum is sky high. I hope this helps.

Help with mine?

I'd actually pass on that deal, too. Lincecum scaring me off right now, and Cruz has potential to be a stud. I might trade a Young or Hart for him if the owner would do it.
