But velocity is nothing in this league, just see Barry Zito shutdown the Cardinals & Tigers.
Lincecum is still a starter, and still just fine. He wasn't prepared for the season, and it hurt him. Next year he'll be playing for a contract. If he's not a legit starter, then you'll have a point. But judging from the fact that he gave up 1 ER in the post-season from the pen, striking out pretty much everybody leads me to believe he's still legit.
