For a few years, Tim Lincecum was one of the most exciting players in baseball, a fireballing ace with long hair and an odd delivery. His fastball has petered out, however, and his struggles the past few seasons have made him something of a liability to the Giants.

The Giants listed re-signing Lincecum as one of their top priorities, but do they know something we don't?
