All Your Base Are Belong to Lincecum??

Holy Fuck. There are only a handful of players I would be happy to get in return for the best player on these Blue Jays. But if the Jays are able to get Tim Lincecum for Alex Rios, my balls will probably explode. A rotation of Roy Halladay, AJ Burnett, Lincecum, Dustin McGowan and Shaun Marcum would be fuckin' A. Add that to a stellar bullpen with the likes of Casey Janssen, Brandon League, Jeremy Accardo, Scott Downs and a returning BJ Ryan. That is some good shit right there.

There have been conflicting reports of whom the Jays prefer, the majority saying the Jays are more interested in Matt Cain, due to his durability and more advanced track record. But Lincecum has one year's less service time, and IMO is a vastly superior talent. Cain is the bee's knees to many in the baseball world, and the Giants are more reluctant to deal Cain as well. Which is fine by All Your Base, cause Lincecum is the shit!

Some quick Lincecum numbers from last year: at age 23, in the bigs, had 150 K's in 146 innings. Opponents hit .226 off him. 1.28 Whip. Nasty fuckin' stuff.

Do it Sabean! Rios is grande!!!
