"It's been a terrible month for Cain, who will enter May with a 6.49 ERA. For comparison's sake, Tim Lincecum never had an ERA that high in any month last season."

Yes. Very bad. I'm pretty sure though that he wont end up with the worst ERA for starters over an entire year like Timmy did. Cain will get it together.

Hope not. But we could and did say the Same thing about Timmy. Dude was coming off a cy young caliber season with a 2.74 era. At least with Timmy we all think we know what's wrong. Location and in part, losing velocity. With Cain... I have no idea
skeet and his Timmy obsession

opponents hit .155 off his out pitch, the splitter last year. This year they are hitting .350. Big difference. When your outpitch is getting destroyed, your ERA is 6 +. The good news is that is a command issue. Once he figures it out, he will be ok.

He's hanging a ton of pitches and I'm pretty confident he'll be able to correct it. Just doesn't look right at the moment.

Yep. Also they seem to be hitting his fastball better too. This came from ESPN blog. Obviously the slugging average is the key difference.

"Hitters have been doing a lot of damage off Cain's fastball, hitting .264/.354/.528, compared to a .255/.332/.429 line last year"
