What's the matter with Matt Cain?

He's not himself. Grant Bisbee at McCovey Chronicles says he may be injured. 

But Matt told the San Jose Mercury News after the game that he's not injured. Damn, I want to believe himn that this is just a really unlucky stretch....

-Q: You looked kind of stunned out there. Was that the sensation–the team’s playing like this, and you have an outing like that, is that a little stunning to you?
-CAIN: Yeah, it is. The way that we think we are as a group, and the team that we are, we feel like this is really, really funky.
We know we’re a lot better than we are; to go out there and have an outing like that is really disappointing and it’s kind of hard to swallow. But you’ve got to get over it.
-Q: Can you put your finger on any one reason why the team is playing this way?
-CAIN: All of ‘em. We’re not doing a lot of things right. It seems that everything’s going wrong. We’re not pitching, we’re not fielding, we’re not getting hits, we’re not doing everything. And it’s definitely showing.
-Q: You’ve been here through some of the rough times. Is this as frustrated as you’ve been?
-CAIN: Yeah, this is probably the worst that I’ve seen in the years that we’ve been here. This is a pretty bad skid and we’ve got to find a way out of it pretty quick.
-Q: What will the next week or so be like for you until your next start?
-CAIN: Just go about my work. Try to really get over these past two and move from it and try to in a way use the All-Star break as a break and get over it and then start over again next half.

It's hard to believe that two months ago, these guys were 23-15 after a 5-1 vic over ATL. 

They were 37-34 three weeks ago after a nice 4-2 vic over the Padres with Bumgarner getting his 7th win; they've gone 3-16 since then with Bumgarner getting two of those.
