Lincecum tires of same old questions


Andrew Baggarly on the aftermath of a(nother) rough outing for Tim Lincecum:



I do feel sorry for these guys, sometimes. Can you imagine having to answer the same questions, dozens and sometimes hundreds of times? Questions, foolish or perhaps not, that don't have satisfying answers?

Lincecum's got a 9.82 ERA in two short spring outings. That's not meaningless, but it's the next best thing.

He's relatively slight of build, which might seem like a serious concern if he hadn't just won a couple of Cy Young Awards.

Lincecum might not stay perfectly healthy through his 20s; most of them don't. But let's not assume there's anything wrong with him until there's actually something wrong with him.
