Lincecum's descent into mediocrity continues. Tonight's version of my recurring nightmare wasn't his worst line ( 6 innings, 4 runs, 5 hits, FOUR walks, and 6 strikeouts) but it was clearly more of the same crap. Come on...walk the first guy on four pitches...don't get a strike with a fastball until pitch #17 and then give up a homer on pitch #19. Since the offense decided to take an extra day off (they did work hard last series after all), the game was over right then.
August was brutal for Tim; FIVE LOSSES, 22 runs given up in 25.1 innings. That's some crappy pitching and it may quite well have taken us out of contention. Only time will tell. I'm really starting to dread Tim's starts....Thank Willie the next one is in September!!
