With Lincecum's Angels deal official, it's going to be fun following him on his comeback - the signing doesn't seem like big money deal for the Angels and it may payoff if Lincecum can mimic some of the performances that made him a great pitcher in San Francisco.

After being picked up from the Atlanta Braves, Chacin made his Angels debut last Sunday - getting a no-decision in a game where he pitched 7 innings, allowed 2 runs and struck out 4 batters.
It's hard to expect much out of Chacin, but perhaps he can string along some solid starts and provide innings - for a Halo starting rotation that has been dinged by injuries and ineffectiveness.

I may have seen both players as ‘harder to get’ autographs in-person / TTM when they were active - so there is a little 'ownage' after the fact, even if these guys are pretty much obscured by history.

I got Thon's certified autograph [$4] to add to my all-time Angels autograph collection - at SCN, there isn't much to go on with zero successes reported out of 23 requests.
Presumably Thon isn’t really a tough autograph, just a retired player who might not typically be accessible because he lives in Puerto Rico - and may not be focused in coaching or doing something stateside.
