    Re: So let's get Lincecum.......

    Hey, since were pondering the preposterously improbable,

    could Cashman offer a boatload of prospects for another elite pitcher (JJ) who's best years are probably ahead of him?

    We all know the Marlins are always looking to shed salaries from their monsterous payroll...

    This is yet another example of why I disagree that Cashman should give up the farm for Halladay. The free agent market is going to be flush with quality starting pitching in 2010-11.

    He will cost a ton of prospects and dollars, and a little guy with that much pressure on his body, coming out of the NL West, is not worth it, IMO.

    Felix won't pitch for the pinstripes. He loathes us.

    Maybe we can do some age-reversing voodoo on Koufax and Pedro as well. Put them back in their primes, we'd be unbeatable.

    Oh, exhume and clone Ruth as well. We need some offense too, after all.

    In all fairness, Pedro did start having some major injury issues around 31-32.

    If I had to predict, Lincecum might be similar - absurdly dominant until his early 30's, and then the injuries start to derail him.

He needs a haircut, though - he looked like a girl when he was being interviewed.
    I keep reading that too - that his mechanics are great. I've never actually seen a slo-mo sequence or freeze frame breakdown of his delivery, but I agree. He does appear to be one degree from being a train wreck. Most of it seems to be from the shoulders, neck and head - as though it's almost a whiplash effect catching up to the rest of his body. Maybe it does work for him - I just wouldn't feel comfortable signing him to a long-term deal.

    Maybe I'm just a pessimist, but no to Lincecum. I would prefer Cashman wait until after 2010 to sign a free agent. Josh Johnson or any of the other major free agents. The team doesn't need a major piece; it just needs some small, useful pieces that support what is already in place.

    Classic!

    This post is the most absurd thing I have ever seen. It deserves all of the condescending replies.

    but i'm sure after playing on some terrible teams and not coming close to the playoffs all these years, his tune has changed some

    Try and package Jeter for Timmy Lin..... Giants probably won't go for it, but show clips of jeter diving in the stands against the sox and mention all of the intangibles.... they are non-monetary so try to pump up their value and get the deal done.... I think Jeter and Molina could get the job done

    He definitely would have to get a haircut.....unless that's the source of his strength.

    No, you got it all wrong. We'll get Lincecum in 8 years. We'll sign him to an 8 year deal worth $120 million more than he's worth. Get it right.

    Some interesting post are now actually true...like someone joked we should also get Ichiro!!!
    Well 4 years later does it make sense to go after Timmy boy at a much discounted price from when I originally posted this?

    Ted Williams is still in a cryogenics tank (filled with liquid nitrogen and minus his head) waiting for technology to be developed to revive him and reattach his head. Any news how the technology has evolved and when it will be ready to revive him?
    I'm sure Ted could still hit .400

    Re: So let's get Lincecum.......

    I would absolutely consider a deal for Tim Lincecum if I were Brian Cashman.

    1. Yes, last year was rough, but he was DYNAMITE in the playoffs - albiet as a reliever, but it seems he found his groove.

    2. His strikeout totals are still very impressive, which means his stuff is still good.

    3. The price to acquire him would not be excessive.


    I'd also consider Alfonso Soriano if either Ichiro or Gardner get hurt.

    While we're at it, lets put Joba back in the rotation.
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.
