Well, there's a debate whether Lincecum will start or not. The Giants plan to keep him a starter until he proves he can't handle it. The reason some people are against him is simply because he's "short". Well to be honest he wouldn't be the first short pitcher to be a star in the majors look at Oswalt, Martinez, Kazmir, Colon, Santana, Maddux, Glavine, Peavy, etc. Imagine that? The best pitcher in baseball isn't 6'5". Lincecum is listed by Baseball America as 6'0". True he may not have a prototypical pitcher's build, so what? Once again neither does Santana and he's the consensus #1 pitcher in all of baseball. Some say his delivery is wack and will cause problems. Will someone please go and tell Will Carroll this? because comments like "I LOVE his delivery. The more I see it, the more I like it, and I wonder every day if that's teachable." or "I wouldn't try to change his delivery, that's for sure. I might let him throw MORE than most at his level" will ruin his reputation in the baseball world. The fact is any true expert whether it be at Baseball America, Baseball Prospectus believes Lincecum can start. However, their will always be those people who pop up and I am sure someone will on this exact thread trying to discredit Lincecum with NO proof to back it up. He's never had any injury problems and people are worried he'll get hurt. Heck anyone can get hurt but, the fact is Lincecum who's 22 years old has NEVER as no history of injuries. Honestly, will someone step up and show me strong proof otherwise? Because, I am still waiting.
Sorry had to get that off my chest.
If your with those that say Lincecum is never going to succeed as a starter in the majors then your list is right but, if your with people like me who say he's going to be a stud then your list may look more like this
