Andrew Miller vs Tim Lincecum?

If you had to pick one of the two to have, who would you pick? This is on a minor league roster, by the way.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I own both in my league. If you had asked me this before I saw Andrew Miller in spring training I would've said Lincecum. However, after watching Andrew pitch two times I almost have to go with him. However, a lot like the previous poster I bounce back and forth on this one as well. Ask me later and I might change my mind. Either way both look like potential studs.

I also like Linecum, but just by a hair. Miller has a great fastball and controls it well with plus-offspeed stuff. He could be the next Randy JOhnson, but Linecum "stuff" is slightly better.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Miller. Lincecum has too many red flags (size and deliver). Plus the giants may turn Lincecum into a setup/closer in the future to avoid injury.

So Andruw Miller couldn't be a RP? The dude is a 2 pitch guy too.

Miller.....his name seems to get lost in the shuffle w/ the "other Miller," Hughes, Bailey, the Garza madness, Pelfrey and the Lose hangu-lez Doy-er young guns Elbert and Kershey.

Linecum's size may be a slight disadvantage, but his delivery isn't. Just because it's different dosen't mean bad. His mechanics are solid. Plus, his stuff is just amazing. But like I said, Miller has the rare ability to control a high velocity fastball and a plus-offspeed pitch.
