Trade for Cliff Lee? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun Jun 10, 2012 8:04 pm

Just got utterly ravaged 14-4 and am really considering a shakeup. Do I try to ship off Lincecum or Anibal Sanchez? They are together destroying any gains my studs are making for me.

One deal that may have legs:

I give: Roy Halladay and Anibal Sanchez
I get: Cliff Lee and Chase Utley

Should I do that? Should I do that if he countered and asked for Lincecum instead of Anibal?

I don't like it. The sticking point is Utley. There is no way I am trading for Utley right now. The injury he is dealing with is the same one he dealt with last year and there is no guarantee that he will be healthy all year. It is an injury he will likely be dealing with for the rest of his career and I would let someone deal with that.

Get something better than Utley and then we can talk about whether the deal is worth doing. I have no problem dealing Lincecum, just know that you aren't likely to get a whole lot for him.
