    R.A. Dickey or Tim Lincecum

    If you were a GM, and your owner gave you the money to sign either of these two pitchers to a LONG TERM contract (5+ years, X amount of money.) Who would you sign? You cannot sign both. Take into account age/price/consistence/talent/potential. You HAVE to offer 5 years to both pitchers. You can offer Lincecum X amount of money, but Dickey will accept .5X-.75X of what you offer Lincecum.

    If you really think about it, it is a tougher question than you want to admit.

    The answer is Lincecum... RA Dickey is 38...

    This isn't a tough question at all.

    R.A. Dickey or Tim Lincecum

    Depends where my team is. If I only have a window of a couple of years left to win I go with Dckey. If my team is on it's way to being a force for years to come I go Timmy

    Pretty much says it.

    Why not ask if we want Jamie Moyer or Strasburg

    R.A. Dickey or Tim Lincecum

    You guys are so quick to pick lincecum. Not saying it's the wrong choice but I'd be skeptical signing him to 5+ years with the amount of money he wants after the year he has put up. his velocity continues to drop every year.

    I'm not even considering Dickey in this though. Just the fact that Lincecum and a long term contract is pretty scary

    Yet you'd offer a 5 year deal to a 38 year old? Lincecum is the obvious choice.

    He said it would be a cheaper deal. At a cheaper deal I'd rather sign Dickey actually. He seems to have gotten better with age. Age doesn't have the same decline effect on knuckleballers compared to other pitchers. You are just looking at age. You aren't comparing Lincecum's sharp declinr to Dickey's steady improvement/consistent pitching. So no, Lincecum is not the obvious choice

    Also, before you talk about his statistics in past years, I'm talking about his sharp drop in velocity and how it'll likely continue to drop with his mechanics

    DICKey or LinceCUM? Tough choice
    Team announced that Eddy Curry had an MRI that revealed strained right hamstring. Out 4-6 weeks. He will not travel with the team to Europe.

    Cheaper deal, yes...but only 1/2 or 3/4 discount.

    So, if Lincecum gets 5 years and $100, that puts Dickey at 5 years and $50/75....which is just too much for Dickey.

    Just like 100 for 5 is too much for lincecum. I feel like Dickey is a safer deal. Call me crazy, but knuckleballers don't decline the way other ptichers do. I would only give Dickey 5/50 though. No way I would give him 5/75. In a realistic situation I wouldn't sign either of them to those deals.

    If I were to sign Dickey to 5 years I think the max I would go is 30mil.

    yea...lincecum and its not even close. Dickey doesnt have the impressive track record that Timmy does. Has Dickey even pitched in the playoffs before?

    This question is asking for trouble. Most people will not take into consideration all the facts and will only bas their decisions on the value of the names. Ask this question again at the end of the season and answers will change.

    track record doesn't mean anything. Lincecum doesn't have the same "car" anymore and it's showing this season. Dickey was a fastball pitcher that converted to a knuckleballer
