Tim Lincecum, SP, San Francisco Giants
The post-2011 version of Tim Lincecum just doesn't seem capable of putting together more than two starts in a row that remind us all of how great he used to be.
The 28-year-old followed up impressive back-to-back starts (13.2 IP, 2 ER, 10 H, 5 BB, 17 K) on April 20 and April 26, both against the Padres, with consecutive poor starts against the D'backs and Phillies, respectively (12 IP, 10 ER, 19 H, 3 BB, 13 K).Wholesale nfl Nike Jerseys,Jerseys For sale Cheap
Two-hit ball over seven shutout innings against the Braves in his next start was followed by his fourth start of the season in which he's allowed more than five earned runs (5 IP, 6 ER, 7 H versus Colorado).
It's way beyond the point of arguing that the stuff is still there and the peripherals are still good. Lincecum is far from the same pitcher who won two Cy Young awards and made four All-Star appearances from 2008 through 2011.
A more consistent second half could still earn Lincecum one of the biggest free-agent contracts next offseason, but whichever team signs him will risk paying huge money to someone who has a good chance of being a complete bust.
