Tim Limcecum vs Scott Elbert vs Adam Miller

How would you rank these three. they are all among the top 10 pitching prospects a small ways behind Bailey and Hughes. My view:

Lincecum: Smallest sample, but best stats. Size doesn't always matter with pitchers (Wagner/Pedro), although awkard motions can be. Projects to be a top closer/#2 starter.

Elbert: If he can solve control problems and improve secondary pitches can eb the best of the three.

Miller: Recovering from injury, but numbers got stronger as the year went on. I have a funny feeling that he'll end up the best of the 3 in a few years.

There is NOTHING wrong with Lincecums delivery for the last time! Lincecum WILL be the best of the 3 then Adam Miller then Scott Elbert... When you think Lincecum think Roy Oswalt...

I agree with that order at this point, but potential wise I think Lincecum has the edge over both. I think its a toss up between Elbert and Miller though. Miller is in the AL so I would probably tend to rank Elbert higher.

From everything I've heard Lincecum could end up being HUGE. BP's projections for him are insanely good as well.

Nothing against Lincecum, but I have read there is talk he could move into the pen. That would factor into my decision, and I would probably take Miller. But you could really take any one and have no problem defending it.

if there's one guy in this list I need to bet money on becoming a RP, it will be Elbert, not Lincecum.
