This one should be a little interesting.

There was a time when Tim Lincecum was considered the best Pitcher in the National League and rightfully so.  Dubbed “The Freak” due to his powerful arm despite having a slender frame, Linceum is one of the few hurlers to record back-to-back Cy Youngs (2008 & 2009) in a stretch where he would also lead the National League both seasons in Strikeouts, FIP and SO/9.   Lincecum would still receive Cy Young votes over the next two seasons but injuries would render him a fraction of what he was and realistically Lincecum was a player with two excellent seasons, two very good seasons, and a few horrible ones, the latter two of which was when he would become a three time World Series Champion.

Lincecum retires with 110 Wins and a sub 20 bWAR, both of which are numbers that make it nearly impossible for him to get into Cooperstown, however consecutive Cy Youngs and a known name will earn him a handful of votes.
