Well in his defense they weren't exactly crushing the ball off of him. A lot of dunk shots and squirters. And he battled, he got out of quite a few jams. He'll be fine and it's not like we don't have 4 other options to go to, if he's not up to speed by October then things will sort themselves out.
I'm more worried about our batters against that rotation. Howard has a .062 average against the Giants this year. They just can't figure out Cain and Lincecum. This guy barely ever throws a strike but yet he fools guy with the movement. He's only 10-9, so some teams have figured him out, I just wish we could.
