Guys you're forgetting thsat Burnett has all that potential. Burnett wins by a mile...
Hamels' WHIP is lower than Lincecum's because of his BB/9 and because of a ridiculously low .234 BABIP compared to Lincecum's .321 BABIP. An average BABIP for a pitcher ranges between .280-.300. Hamels just has really good defense behind him, and Lincecum's WHIP will drop when some of those plays begin turning into outs.
Hamels' FIP further proves this, with a 3.63 mark instead of the 3.18 he currently owns. Lincecum's is 2.91 instead of the 2.66 ERA he has.

The Future is Here
Not even close, Hamels.
.300 AVG, 1 HR, 6 RBI, .431 OBP, .375 SLG, .806 OPS, .371 wOBA, 136 wRC+, .4 fWAR, 126 OPS+
Hamels-Younger, has been more consistent, and isn't always on the DL.
Burnett-Hasn't been very consistent and will rarely go a year without some sort of injury.
I'd say Lincecum.
He woulda been ****ed in Washington...
Update: Turns out he was ****ed in Kansas City too

I almost accidentally voted for Burnett. God, I would have looked like an idiot!
Hamels, cause i like the phillies too.
Burnetts era is literally almost 5 (4.97) and Hamels is at 3.13
Burnetts whip is 1.47 on top of that while Hamels is at a GAWDY 1.02
the only thing they are close in is wins and ks which arent great stats to measure a pitcher by anyway...stop talking before they think Jays fans are like Giants fans (jks )
