Brad Lincoln knocking harder on the door




It doesn't seem like very long ago last season that we were all clamoring for Brad Lincoln to step up and help rejuvenate our struggling rotation.  We all know how that turned out with Brad going 1-4 with a 6.66 ERA.  A lot has changed at the big league level with seemingly all of our pitchers having career seasons.  Lincoln in the meantime has improved on his AAA numbers that had us all crying for him to arrive last year.  His K/BB has gone from 3.50 to 4.54, he's seen his WHIP go up a tick from 1.14 to 1.17 (which I think could be attributed to BABIP going from .280 to .308).  He's leaving more runners on base, he's allowing fewer home runs, plus, his FIP and ERA are down.

 

I guess in conclusion, don't forget about Lincoln who is far from fading.  With all the hype certain other guys are getting (cough Rudy Owens cough) it is Lincoln who has been performing better and who should get the call if and when the team needs another starter.
