    Drop Lincecum?

    And Grab Dickey or Pettitte? I know at the beginning of the year this would have sounded absolutely absurd, but i've tried shopping Lince around and no one wants him even a little bit. I'm dead last in ERA and 2nd to last in WHIP and Lince is just wasting a spot as far as I'm concerned, but I know of toucrse the MOMENT I drop him he will go back into Freak mode.

    So what do you guys think is it still ridiculous to just straight up drop him or nah?

    • Yeah I suppose I'll just throw him on the bench and hope he has a couple of good starts in a row and then I can try to trade him off at that point haha. I'm just hurting for some offensive spots at the moment because I have made some good 2 for 1 trades for Gio Gonzalez and Cliff Lee, but those 2 for 1's left me short handed at the moment. I should be fine come this weekend though as Austin Jackson and Craig are both slated to come back.

      My Bench has just been piled up with players that are too good to drop, jackson, craig, longoria, ellsbury, and thats killing me at the moment.

    • If you really want to get rid of him, trade him. You won't get full value but you should be able to get someone better than Dickey or Pettite.

    • Who would drop him in May?
      Get a grip there Sally, you must be new at this

    • i think you gotta stick with lincecum. yea hes been terrible and its hurt your team but i would be willing to take the risk that he can figure things out. dickey isnt a bad pick up though

    • hell no keep em on your bench till he comes around. hes a cy winner, just on a slump

    • he isn't on the can't cut list? even if he wasn't, no way. Lincecum is far too talented to just drop and is an elite pitcher in the game. Sure he is off to a terrible start but he will bounce back and then you'll be sorry. Just be patient, your ERA and WHIP will go up once he bounces back.

      I'm currently working out a deal with a manager who has Lincecum but haven't even dared making an offer involving Lincecum because I know the manager will ask for a lot in return.
