There's no doubt, if I were a Giants fan I'd be yelling for Bochy's head.
One difference though is that Lincecum is well known as a freak of nature. Supposedly he doesn't ice down after games and doesn't experience the same soreness as most pitchers because of his unique delivery. I don't think that changes a thing, of course, just interesting to note.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
