What If the Tigers Drafted Tim Lincecum?

In the 2006 draft, nine teams passed on Tim Lincecum before the San Francisco Giants took him with the tenth pick.  Kevin Goldstein, in his latest Future Shock, speculates what might have happened if each of the nine teams ahead of the Giants had taken Lincecum.

Of course one of those teams was the Detroit Tigers, who took Andrew Miller with the sixth pick.  He talks about how while Lincecum makes the Tigers rotation stronger, it also means they don’t have Miguel Cabrera in the lineup so it probably washes out.  Good stuff because while Lincecum helps out most of those nine other teams, it’s not as much of a difference as you might think.
