Can Lincecum Regain All-Star Form?

Freak occurrence, or freak out? Those are the two perspectives weighing on the collective mind of Giants management and its fans regarding “The Freak” Tim Lincecum. The diminutive righty entered the 2012 campaign off a staggering four-year run, averaging over 220 innings per season with a 2.81 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in this span. His aptitude was so venerable that few batted an eye when Lincecum declined a five-year extension last offseason worth nearly $100 million. After all, since entering the league in 2007, the then-27-year-old already laid claim to four All-Star appearances, two Cy Young Awards and a World Series ring. Though the San Francisco starting rotation boasted depth with formidable arms in Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner and Ryan Vogelsong, Lincecum was unquestionably the front of the staff, and to a greater extent, the face of the franchise.
