Considering Timmy L has some good post season outings under his belt and proved to pitched much better than expected in long relief this past World Series, where games are on the line, the season being on the line (Kershaw hasn't pitched in these circumstances), and with Tim L coming out a winner each time plus the 2010 World Series. If I'm the manager of the team and had to choose between those 2 pitchers, game 7 situation, with everything on the line - I will for sure take experience (Tim L) over a pitcher that has no WS experience to speak of.
Having said that - I will take Tim L and put "the Freak" on the mound and the bad boy do his thing. I'm still fascinated watching him pitch and getting out of jam after jam, if he's even in a jam to begin with. "The Freak" is hands down the man for the job, no ifs,ands or buts!
Just as a disclaimer: I am not a Giants fan nor a Dodgers fan. So if anyone is thinking that I'm pulling for "The Freak" because he's on the team that I'm a fan of - that's out. I'm a die hard Yankees fan for over 30 years, but still love watching "The Freak" do his thing.
I'll say this: If my beloved Yankees played the SF Giants in the WS (which could have been had the Yankees beat the Tigers, which coincidentally ended up getting a taste of its own medicine by getting swept just as well), and it's game 7 with Tim Linc pitching, i'd be a little panicky inside, much more-so than if Kershaw was pitching in that same scenario.
So there you have it. In the post season Tim Linc is the man having had the experience he's had, and knowing that, I believe he'd do a much better job keeping the score very low on the opposition than if Kershaw was pitching in a game 7 of the world series.
