Who to Start Message Board
I have Tim Lincecum and as you may know he has sucked it up all season. Would you trade Lincecum for Madison Bumgarner or do you think Lincecum will come around and start playing well
If you can find a sucker to take Lincecum for someone as good as MadBum, do it. Timmy may have been 'the freak', but he isn't anymore. Everything about him is off this year. Velocity is down, no faith in the slider, walks are up, strikeouts are down. His only good outing has been against the Padres, and they are the worst lineup in he NL. Even if he does come around, MadBum will put up numbers equal or better and is the the more consistent one for sure.
If you can get Baumy for Lincy, do it.
In a second. A heartbeat.
Even if Lincy turns it around, Baumy will still out-pitch him this year.
But if you have Baumy, don't trade him for Lincy.
Just my honest opinion...

DO NOT DO THIS. Lincecum is the freak. Back to Back Cy Young awards this early in his career? My goodness! 3 years straight over 200 strikeouts? He is one of the best. Have patience. Bumgarner will not outpitch Lincecum this year.
