Here’s the problem with Lincecum — strictly my opinion. 1) You never know what you’re going to get with him this season. 2) He has had disaster innings too much of the time. It happens so fast that before Bochy gets a reliever warmed up, it’s too late. The Giants are reluctant to risk that in a short series.

    Couldn’t agree more – I’ve been saying and posting it most of this season. Combine it with his immature petulism (re: Posey) and he becomes a liability. What I don’t understand is the myopia of some Giant’s fans who think he’ll suddenly return to 2010 form. Not this year. Go Niners – what a performance!

    Remember Mario Lanza? Britney Murphy?..Karen Carpenter???…all did the gain and then lose huge amounts of weight and none were over 35. All died of heart attacks and other issues because of weight loss stress.
    Lincecum learned that he cant be at a top MLB level with his -yo-yo dieting. Once..ok maybe.,but twice in three years could have done permanent damage. His stamina doesn’t equal his early years..and at 28?..whoa.very bad. Thin people should be able to outlast the big guys-right? they do in marathons..but not Tim.
    My best feeling is..if he made his mind up to be healthy..he can be Cy level..but if Tim-like I think he feels- wants to leave SF to go to some other city..and not change..he will be a footnote far too soon.

    It hardly matters when you can’t hit a lick in the playoffs
