    Maybe but oh wait they actually know what the schedule is so they gave the kid some softball clubs to build his confidence and pad his stats.

    So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

      It had more to do with Super 2 status passing than the lineups he would have to face.

        Which part? Lincecum's 2-seam, change, curve combo is just as good as Strasburg, but it lacks the excellent 4-seamer and other breaking balls (I saw some stuff that looked like a slider and a slurve, but I didn't see the grip so I'm not sure) that Strasburgh offers.

            The fact that you don't watch the best sport in the universe makes me very sad.

              • Lincecum's velocity is not even close to the same as when he debuted.

                  And if the schedule right now were the Phillies, Braves, and Marlins Steve would have debuted later this month

                  • He can't throw his change for strikes, all you have to do is look fastball

                      He dropped the speed to become a more efficient finesse (ish) pitcher, which worked very well.

                        Doubt it. He was learning nothing in the minors.

                          I know this. It's not working that well this year though.

                            This is true. Since he's started learning how to use his splitter/changeup so much better, he's obviously not striding quite as hard to generate that upper 90's fastball. It's obviously helped him, as his K/9 rate is exactly the same and his K/BB rate is significantly lower than it was the past two years.

                              It's called a rough patch.
