Which young SP?

Postby Niffoc4 » Fri Feb 23, 2007 10:13 am

This is my last roster spot, so I am looking more at this year than the future... but I am willing to take a risk on a future talent. Right now I have Adam Loewen. If you could replace him with one of these guys who would you take? (by the way my league counts k/bb)
Homer Bailey
Tim Lincecum
Luke Hochevar

I think Bailey has higher potential but I think Lincecum has more of a chance to be in the bigs this year.

Bailey.

for this season I would keep Loewen.
Of the other 3 definately Bailey. If Lincecum comes up there is a good chance he will be in the bullpen. Hochevar is not that close to the Big Show.

i like Lincecum alot... his K potential eclipses Baileys imo... that translates better to fantasty purposes however his durability is a huge question and whether or not he will stay in the rotation.

i'd take bailey. he has a bigger chance of making the big leagues and suceeded. Lincecum is risky.hes a small guy, 5 foot something and 165 lbs. he throws a sinker and a mid 90s fastball and has a weird delivery. he might blow out his arm since he's so small. Bailey is less of a risk.

I guess i am leaning Bailey... but I am a big fan of Lincecum... I dunno. I think I might see if either one makes it through waivers, and pick them up then...

That's the thing about Lincecum and how he fell to #10 in the draft(luckily, I might add). Many people are misinformed about his delivery and just assume he's going to blow out something.

The fact is that he and his dad have worked on his delivery for years and years. They have worked out what they believe is the best way to maximize Lincecum's power. His mechanics are actually very good.

Here are a few articles about him that explain this further.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/news/story?id=2453860 (only touches a little bit about it)

http://detectovision.com/?p=680 (this one is particularly exceptional)

http://www.baseballevolution.com/richar ... cecum.html

Overally, though, you probably have to go with Bailey here. I love Lincecum, but Bailey has proven his stuff a little more in the minors.
