Anybody Trust Lincecum Yet?

Postby freepeterose » Sun Jul 01, 2012 10:05 am

Lincecum is coming off a couple good outting and has a two start week. Anybody trust him to put him in the lineup yet?

I have Ian Kennedy who has been struggling but just put up some good numbers this week.

considering sitting him for LIncecum but I just can't feel good about Timmy but it is tempting. I think Lincecum will get his groove back but not sure yet.

I have weaver, kennnedy, Cain, Hamels and Baumgartner as my starters and picked up Lincecum as a free agent.

@WSH and @PIT are both favorable matchups as far as lineups are concerned, but as bad at Lincecum's been this year, he's been really bad on the Road. Like 7.59 ERA bad. I'd let him show me he can pitch at least alright in those two games next week before I started him over Kennedy who faces the Padres at Home.

Thats what i think as well it is easy and very tempting to overvalue a player based his past performance.
