Lincecum

Postby spark0901 » Thu May 27, 2010 9:41 am

So there was some news about him having a blister during last nights game. Hopefully that start can be attributed to that. But what is going on with his control of late? He's walked 15 batters in his last 3 games. Are his mechanics a little off? God I hope its just a blister. I invested too much in him for him to develop some sort of arm issue this year.

I don't think there is much to worry about at all here, if it's a blister that is a minor injury which won't cause too much problems, maybe a start or two... Lincecum is the Pujols of pitching, he may go through a few minor slumps, but he'll get out of it. I wish i had him!

He's had 3 bad starts with absolutely no command and is regressing. I'm not to worried but he was blown up by the Nats. That's something to worry about. Not to mention his velocity is down to 92-93 when before he was hurling 94-95.

If you look at his career splits, his ERA is highest in May other than September, walks are highest in May, and ER are highest in May... he'll turn it around for sure... plus the Nationals aren't the Nationals of old this year. He'll turn it around soon, and be back in the Cy Young conversation again.

Yeah...at 24-25 years old he's regressing already, all because he's had 3 bad starts in a row.

With your logic, would you be willing to admit that Pujols is regressing too? Given your screen name, I'd say that's doubtful.
