youngest ace pitchers?

Tim Lincecum is 24, are there any really good 'ace' caliber pitchers that are 21/22ish?

    Not really. Matt Cain(his teammate) is 4 months younger than Lincecum and, in my opinion, almost as good. If he gets consistant run support this year he could have a breakout year like Lincecum did last year. Other than that, most of the really dominant guys are a little older. And keep an eye out for Madison Bumgardner. He's in the Giants organization and he'll be ready for the bigs next year, and he's only 19! He struck out Manny Ramirez looking in spring training on 3 pitches and, after Manny found out he was only 19 said, "Really? He's nasty!"

    Don't forget Zack Greinke at 25, this years early favorite to win the AL Cy Young. He's been threatening to have a break out year for the last 2-3 years. Finally his time has come.
