Halladay or Lincecum, which former ace would you want?

Just curious how the board feels. If you had to have either Halladay or Lincecum on your fantasy team, which one are you more confident in bouncing back?

I think Lincecum. He's 7 years younger, and I think probably in better health. Plays in a better home park. Both are pretty big gambles. Both have shown some glimpses. Bleh.

I agree with this. "Bleh" is my feeling on both but I'd go Timmy based on the reasons stated.

I'd say Doc, if only because he's the smarter and harder working pitcher. If there is someone who can figure out how to be effective with a limited physical capacity, it would be Doc. TImmay just looks rough out there...

I'd prefer neither, but if I had to have one It'd be Lincecum. Likely to have more K's and plays in a somewhat easier division. Halladay gets the Nats and Braves over and over again, and the Mets aren't a terrible offense either.

Lincecum and it isn't close for me. Higher K potential, better situation so I feel safe using him in more matchups. Neither one is a start every time guy though.
