The guy that Bill Bavasi passed on...

Good thing Mariners fans have their Brandon Morrow bobbleheads because that's all their getting out of him. Since Seattle royally screwed with Morrow's head and development he's turned into the most terrifying force on the mound... for the fans, not the opposing team.

And the guy former Mariners GM passed on to get Morrow? Tim Lincecum just won his second NL Cy Young Award.

NEW YORK -- Giants ace Tim Lincecum won the NL Cy Young Award on Thursday for the second consecutive season to become the first repeat winner since Randy Johnson, emerging from one of the tightest votes in the history of the honor.

Lincecum led the NL with 261 strikeouts and tied for the league lead with four complete games and two shutouts. The wiry right-hander, nicknamed "The Freak" for his giant stride, went 15-7 with a 2.48 ERA.

Only 10 points separated the top three vote-getters. Chris Carpenter was second and St. Louis teammate Adam Wainwright was third, despite getting the most first-place votes.

I don't blame Morrow because it's not his fault Seattle couldn't make up their mind where to put him (see the Joba Chamberlain saga) but can you imagine if Felix and Lince were on the same rotation? My god...
