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.
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.

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.
