Guess who's coming to spring training?

Amidst all my bewilderment over the Russ Ortiz signing, I missed the real news of the day -- the Giants have invited Tim Lincecum to spring training. They're also inviting Sun Woo-Kim, Damian Moss, Tyler Walker and Eddy Martinez-Esteve but Lincecum is by far the the most interesting. He held hitters to a .127 average last year so no one has figured out how to hit him yet.

Jonathan Mayo rated him the 26th best prospect in the minors last year and said this -- If the Giants want to put him in the pen, he could help out next season. As a starter, it may take a little longer, but he's got nasty stuff either way.

How's this sound for a rotation -- Zito, Cain, Lowry, Morris, Lincecum?

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night in cold sweats thinking about Tim.

Thats not weird or anything is it?

I hope the Giants keep him in the minors some more to let him keep working on pitching. I think he'll zip through the minors and theres a good chance he'll be in the pen by the time 2007 is over and done with.
