Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
In a H2H league, his value's not that high really. He's going to be shut down after 6 more starts or so, and that's right around playoff time for most leagues. Why trade for a guy who might get you into the playoffs, but then do nothing once you're in it? Not only that, but with his injury, people are going to be nervous that the Nats will decide to shut him down early just to be safe.
Plus, this is his first professional year, so if he makes it to September, he's going to be fatigued and might have a couple of bad outings like his last start. Strasburg mentioned the fatigue thing when people were asking about his injury.
i wouldnt trade Lince for Hunter and i dont think Stras will have too much value he doesnt pitch well vs the better teams in baseball yes i consider the Marlins as one of the better teams. there offense is good. anyway could you answer my post http://messages.fantasysports.yahoo.com/Fantasy_Sports/Baseball/threadview?m=tm&bn=fan-baseball-drafttalk&tid=1540345&mid=1540345&tof=6&frt=1
Strasburg still has some value...but not nearly as much as before his DL stint.
You can certainly trade him to someone in the playoff race. You would need to send a note playing up his contributions in ERA, WHIP, and K and let them know that he still gives plus performance in 3 out of 5 standard scoring categories.
Also seperate question. I offer Hunter for Lincecum.
My outfield is Cargo,Werth, Cruz, Quentin, Elsbury and Hunter.
Is this a good/reasonable offer?
I'v already qualified for d playoffs so i have a few weeks for linc to come good.
