Factor in Cain has traditionally faltered against Cincy, and off course the once dominating Tim Lincecum becoming nothing more than a potential game 4 starter. Interesting where Madison is drafted next year.....
He has those bad games and stretches, but most of the time he's utterly dominant.
I wouldn't worry too much about him.
