    Bailey's had 1 good start, that's it.

    He's not going to sniff 7 K/9, and I'd be surprised if he had a 3:1 K:BB.

    The kid just isn't ready compared to the other two.

    That's what I'm basing that on.

    If you have Lincecum, deal him for whatever you can get now, unless it is a keeper league.
    Good heavens, Chicken Little, the sky isn't falling.

    Lincecum's numbers are fine. His K/9 is high, and opponents are hitting .235 against him.

    He's having some control issues, but if you only give up 4 hits a game, who cares if you walk 5?

    Don't sell low on Lincecum right now, boys. He can only get better.

    Even if he gets hammered, he gets 5 or 6 strikeouts. In our league, that wipes out the earned runs allowed.

    I'd dump Bailey for the simple reason he's going to be up and down the whole year.

    I'm thinking Lincecum is on a bit of an upswing right now.

    Struck out 12 in 7 innings with no walks or runs and only 3 hits allowed.

    Hope nobody dropped him.
