If you were to build a team around a young ace and you had a choice between Tim Lincecum or Zack Greinke, who would you pick? Both are 25 years old.

Lincecum, only because they have both been in the league for some time, and he has proven more.

Lincecum without a doubt. I never liked Greinke, something about him that just doesn't seem right. Lincecum has already proven himself, so I would pick him.

It hurts me to say this, but I picked Grienke. Lincecum's delivery is wild and I could see him getting seriously injured sometime down the line.

Lincecum for me. Greinke hasn't put it all together until the first part of this season. Maybe it is a fluke and he is really the up and down player he has been for his first 4 seasons (you know, the one that got demoted to the bullpen in 2007).

But, until he does get injured, it's Lincecum by a landslide.

You can't say Greinke is better just because Lincecum has a possibility to get injured because of his throwing motion. That's crazy talk.

Lincecum has put up numbers for awhile. Greinke had been a disappointment until this year.

I don't get how Greinke gets a vote here, to be honest.

I go with Tim Lincecum as my young ace. Let's not forget Greinke has more experience in the Bigs than Lincecum, but even though, i still pick Lincecum for the way he pitches, he's the best in the game. It won't surprise me if he wins this year the National League Cy Young Award.

Timmy would be my answer. Already a cy young and a 2nd one might be coming this year. Grienke is having a nice first half, but Timmy is the better pitcher and will be the top 3 until he retires.

just wait till he throws a 4th pitch...

I don't think you can really build a team around a pitcher, but Lincecum.

I voted Grienke just to be a dick cause I am tired of voting for Lincecum threads everyday when its always the obvious.
