Posnanski on Cain

2

Posnanski with a few words about Cain. My favorite quote: A few words about Matt Cain: He is only 27 years old. This seems almost impossible to believe. It feels like Matt Cain has been pitching for the Giants at least since Marichal. He was called to the big leagues when he was 20, and he has pitched at least 190 innings every year since. He has been the perfect antithesis to his pitching partner Tim Lincecum: while Lincecum has been spectacular, Cain has been steady; while Lincecum has been been quirky Cain has been steady; while Lincecum has been mercurial, Cain has been steady; while Lincecum has led the league in strikeouts three times and won two Cy Young Awards, Cain has been steady; while Lincecum has been goofy and quotable and out there, Cain has been steady.
