ERA's a buck and a half (2nd in the NL), he's 3rd in K's, 1 behind Peavy and 2 behind Santana and he's 4-1 on an absoloutely SH$TE Giant's team who could easily lose 100 games this year.
Ya ya ya, i know, just friggin stats, but you know what...... He looks a lot more polished, he's using all 3 of his pitches no matter where he is in the count and making hitters look foolish.
But ya, I see regression for sure
Dude, I'm sorry, but some of your posts and opinions are just plain wack LOL
My comments about Lincecum were made before the season started. All I said was I think it is likely Lincecum will regress on his 2007 numbers in 2008 based on my research that shows around 70% of second year pitchers do regress due to familiarity.
I've not made one negative comment about him since the season started and yes I have seen a number of his starts this year and he does look very good. Still, his whip and BAA are poor so bad luck or not, nothing I've seen has convinced me that I'll be wrong about him. Time will tell and we'll all be experts in September. The real experts are those that predict these things in March

Then find it. It's been posted on this site several times over the past 4 years. It's gold.
That's laughable. It's like your posts are scripted. Silly claim. Request for proof. Either ignore or say proof has already been posted countless times, though nobody's seen it. If it's that simple, share it with the community. You also said "based on my research"; so is it work that you did, or something you read? Clearly Yoda's not the only one who hasn't heard this % thrown out before. It may very well be true, and if so, I'm interested in reading about it, because that number seems high to me. Now, I'm certain I'll get a reply about what a dullard I am, etc. etc., but the fact remains, we're dying to see it. I'd try searching your posts, but I wouldn't know which one of your 4 accounts to look at.
