So, I inherited a team and had to re-draft from the six abandoned teams' rosters I like my team but realized I don't have a draft pick (rookies and free agents) for the coming up draft. I have loads of pitching (especially for a 16 team league) so am considering shopping Lincecum for a package including draft picks. But, what is his realistic value? I don't wanna screw myself over by asking for too much and have the other manager (who has shown interest) opt out of talks. But I also don't want to ask for too little.
League specifics: 16 team h2h dynasty.
The manager had previously offered me Brandon Morrow for Lincecum (plus another undetermined player that was a "small" player.) Talks fizzled away as I was working a lot, but now he has traded Morrow and interested again.
He has several first round picks, a couple in each other round. I don't have a pick until the third round and my minor leagues suck.
Lincecums salary is 12/12/12/15 so I'd like to shed that if i can.
He wants to know what pick(s) I'd want and for me to pay $5m per year. So, I would shed 7m a season, but am stuck on which picks to ask.
Here are his picks:
Round 1: 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14
Round 2: 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, 11, 12
Round 3: 3, 4, 9
As you can see, he has 17 picks int he first three rounds. I have two.
What should I trade Lincecum for?
My other SPs are: Verlander, Greinke, Lee, Peavy, Lohse, Alexi Ogando, Zach McAllister, Trevor Bauer, Mike Montgomery, Eric Surkamp (M)
