Should the Giants trade Lincecum?

Dave Cameron of fangraphs makes the case that the Giants trading Tim Lincecum can improve the team.

Cameron proposes this deal "For instance, let’s say the Giants decided to ask the Yankees for Jesus Montero and Eduardo Nunez, and just to make sure they didn’t receive a better offer from Boston, they also would like New York to take some of Aubrey Huff’s remaining $12 million contract off their hands. Not only would the team get a right-handed power bat to take over at first base and a young shortstop with some upside, they’d clear between $25 and $30 million off the books in 2012 salary – enough to re-sign Carlos Beltran, add a real center fielder, and have enough left over to bring in a pitcher to replace Lincecum in the rotation." - fangraphs
