I actually prefer Homer Bailey who seems to be the only one of these 4 who is actually preparing himself to become a major league pitcher. Lincecum and Gallardo are content striking everyone out while Bailey is impressively working on his control and getting contact outs in the minors. Based on what I have seen, Bailey will become the most complete pitcher...I would go

1. Bailey
2. Hughes
3. Gallardo
4. Lincecum

I think the Lincecum is a flash in the pan...not the real deal, and doesnt have the body to hold up for a MLB 30 starts per year. Lincecum is better suited for a closer role similar to a Billy Wagner.

Funny how most experts would tend to disagree with you...

He has the stuff and screw this crud about him not having the body. Please go tell Oswalt that he doesnt have the body to pitch 200 innings a season. Or how bout Johan Santana. I cant wait till he proves people like you DEAD wrong

I agree, how can you say Lincecum is a flash in the pan? Top draft pick who is dominating the PCL in an unprecedented way. It's not his fault that nobody can hit him.

This is how it is....

#1 Hughes. (2006 AA) 116.1 IP , 32 BB , 5 HR , 138 Ks. Outstanding. Number one pitching prospect at this stage.

BIG GAP

#2nd Equal Gallardo & Bailey. Both had nearly identical AA stats in 2006.

Lincecum is disqualified at this stage through not having enough innings to judge from. (31.2 A innings in 2006 and 31 AAA innings in 2007 - not enough)

Also Lincecum and Bailey get points off for being on teams with half-wit front offices. ;-D

I love posts like this... Critics have been harsh on Lincecum no matter how awesome his stuff is or even puts up eye popping numbers. There will always be something to nitpick about him. Guys who can throw 100 MPH with a plus plus curve don't exactly grow on trees but anyway.

Hughes
Lincecum

(small gap)

Gallardo
Bailey


is how i'd rank them as of now.


Exactly. ;-D

I might switch Bailey and Gallardo, but people put too much stock into April stats. You can see how Lincecum can dominate hitters, but Hughes can too. And I think at the end of the year, Hughes will be the selection.
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.

I'm not a critic , 60 odd pro innings (and half of them A level) is a very small sample size. I'm neutral on Lincecum through lack of innings , not negative at all. If he throws 100-150 AAA innings and keeps it to the same standard then I can start dribbling over him. ;-D

It's always something. He's too small. Weird, unpredictable mechanics. Small sample size. His competition is weak, etc, etc, etc... Yet all he does is put up beyond ridiculous numbers across the board every start. He's given up 1 ER and 0 HRs in 5 starts at PCL. And faced a team back to back and they still couldn't touch him. Do you even realize how hard it is to accomplish what he is doing right now?

Agree with Yoda here. Although the sample size is small, he has been retarded. His peripherals are off the charts, and it's not like he is doing it with smoke and mirrors.

I see it like this:

Lincecum
Gallardo
Hughes
Bailey

Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!
