Start #13: Loss (2-7) 5.2 innings 9 hits 5 runs 4 walks 5 strikeouts
Getting shut-out for the second time in three days should be the most troubling aspect of today's loss to the Rangers. Oh no, the dark cloud of 2012 continues to be the complete ineffectiveness of Tim Lincecum. He came into today with an embarrassing ERA of 5.83 and somehow found a way to RAISE IT to 6.00. Six point frigging zero. Unbelievable.
I have posted after EIGHT straight losses and I'm sick of it. I know we all lived through that terrible August. But this feels different. I am not sure what is different but I don't think we have seen the worst of it yet. Talk amongst yourselves, or not.
The good: Yeah, right.
The bad: I am clearly rattled. Nothing Tim is trying (assuming that he is trying) is working. In fact, this start looked like a clear step backwards. Have we entered a new era? Could it all have changed so quickly?
