How do you pronounce Tim Lincecum? Any way BP could add this feature to a players card? TV guys never seem to get it right.

Kevin Goldstein: LYNN-suh-come. TV guys brutalize names of guys when they first come up, but frankly, so do I until I hear someone who knows say it. I would like that as a feature as well, but at the same time, we'd have to put all of those pronunciations in our data set by hand, and wouldn't THAT be nasty.
