It's tough not to opt for the Giants when Lincecum is on the hill. He simply keeps them in the game, and they are already 4-0 with him on the mound this year. He has allowed just 3 runs in two career starts vs the Padres. Chris Young is a bit overrated, mainly due to his lights out performance through a good chunk of the season last year, where the Padres went 14-6 with him on the mound. Since then, he has not been the same pitcher, and the results are the proof. The Padres are just 3-11 in his last 14 starts, and 1-3 this season. We will ride the consistent pitching of Lincecum vs Young, who just hasn't been able to find the same magic from early last year.
