Random thoughts - Tim Lincecum

While I can't ever feel like he does stepping onto the mound as a Major League starting pitcher, I guess I can emphathize with Tim Lincecum's struggles in 2012 - I keep thinking no matter how hard he wants to blow the ball past hitters and grind starts out, the pitches he is throwing are misfiring and he's getting smacked around.

Is this the beginning of the end for the two time Cy Young Award winner [?] - as much as Lincecum has been built up as a superstar over the last two or three years, it goes without saying that the reason we remember the name is because of all the work he's done to as a 'freakish' athlete who worked against the odds to be a master of his craft.
