As a Giants fan who has lived less than 10 miles from AT&T Park for most of my life, I have been watching Lincecum since he came up and the problem isn’t just the fastball. He has been bouncing his once unhittable changeup and hasn’t been nearly as consistent in executing his off speed and breaking stuff. He doesn’t hit spots like he used to. The other night against the Mariners I saw him bounce his changeup quite a few times. He didn’t ever used to do that. In the past, I have seen Lincecum have games where he tops out at 91 or 92 and fan 10+ guys. I’m not sure why everyone is so eager to think it’s his pure stuff that is lacking. Like Brent said, it’s definitely his confidence.

i respect the guy and i believe his off season work is determining his in season play.  also understood this guy does commercials, media obiligations  or some other personal issue who knows. still both a great thrower and pitcher
