    Ya your right, when they get older, a few years will mean very little, but for now thats all we can go on, is a major league season for Lincecum and the Dodgers babying Kershaw.

    Its kinda like when A-Rod was drafted by the Mariners. if you asked the majority who would be a better SS him or Jeter, most would say Jeter because he had a .314 average and 70 plus RBI in his rookie year and A-Rod was one year behind. But A-Rod was two years younger and coming right out of High School, which now looking back, meant alot.

    So you couldn't help but agree with what was on the table, compared to what you have not seen, and we saw how that worked out. (Though thats a weak example, when A-Rod has no rings and Jeter does =) )

    So thats what I am going on, I could be totally wrong, but I'm just going on previous years then future

    Well the question is career and with Lincecum's funky delivery I see a back injury in his future. Kershaw on the other hand has great mechanics and has the build of a power pitcher already at the age of 20. Both are stud pitchers atm and It will be fun to watch (and beat ) Lincecum over the years.

    I'll take Kershaw. Go figure huh.

    It's strange that all my fellow Giants fans are picking Lincecum, and all dodger fans are picking Kershaw. Hmmmm....

    Interesting revelation you got there. Probably just a coincidence.

    That's what i was gonna say. At least we're not as in love with our players as Mets fans.

    How's this:

    His fastball and curveball are both ranked as 80's on the 20-80 scouting scale.

    You are the LAST person who should be saying anything about the bias of other fans.

    Still waiting for your reasoning on why Saito is ranked 8th on the closer's list. And the fact that he is on the Dodgers is not a reason.

    We all know Lincecum has a "funky" delivery, but whos to say that Kershaw gets into a car acident, and that ends his carrer, the same can be said with Lincecums arm. You can't really predict an injury, you can say who is more likely, but not predict it.

    I knew a Mets fan would get pissed at me for saying that, and yes, I am biased.

    Aren't Kershaw's also?

    Also, IMO this whole major league experience thing is a bunch of bunk. If Lincecum had like 2 or 3 years in the majors it'd be one thing, but the dude's had ~3/4s of a season in the majors, he's not exactly a grizzled vet. If it were someone like Matt Cain who's been up for a while and continually succeeded it'd be one thing, but many guys come up and do good for most of one season and then fall off significantly(Zach Duke).

    And to whoever tried to act like it isn't, the age thing is a HUGE factor. Why do you think King Felix is such a big deal? It's because he's doing very well at the major league level at an age where the majority of guys are still pitching in the minors and he's only going to get better. Same deal with Kershaw, he will in all likelihood be pitching in the majors at the same age that Lincecum was when he started pitching in college. When looking at young players and prospects age is a huge factor, and it's one that Kershaw has a big advantage on.
