I think a lot of growing up has to do with the experiences you go through, whether that be good or bad," Lincecum said.
"You talk about guys like Matt Cain, who grew up before everybody else did, he's like 30 years old, and he's the same age as me." Matt Cain is actually slightly younger then Lincecum but you would not know that just by talking to them."There's different people," Lincecum said. "They go through different experiences that shape them. And it's unfortunate also that you have to go through bumps, like I am going through, to get to where you think you need to be."That's just about changing yourself and looking for the right road to take instead of making it hard on myself or hard on yourself."
Lincecum needs to remain candid and open about the charges and they will all blow over soon. His excellence will far overshadow the minor violations. ---Smokescreen ---
