re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
I think Lynn falling off in the last quarter of the season had more to do with fatigue than anything. Matheny rode him into the ground. If I'm not mistaking, I believe it was his first full year starting. With Carpenter down and Lynn having Cy Young type statistics through 10-15 starts, the Cardinals treated him like he was Chris Carpenter, when in reality, Lynn is a young, immature pitcher without a lot of innings on his arm.
