Madison Bumgarner vs. Tim Lincecum

One of the many key decisions Bruce Bochy must make: He needs a starter for Game 2, and Bumgarner and Lincecum are his only obvious options to go on regular rest. (He could opt for Ryan Vogelsong on short rest.) Lincecum has been better than the mercurial Bumgarner in this postseason, but both have struggled to regain the form they showed during their dominant run in 2010. Particularly if the Tigers win behind Verlander in Game 1, this will be a crucial game for San Francisco.
