Crispy Tim

"Concern about Lincecum's groin also prompted the Giants to spare him the journey to Tucson, a round trip that would have lasted at least four hours. Sitting on a bus for that long is no way to heal an injury"

Can anyone ever remember a developing star get such careful treatment? It sure doesn't seem like the organization looks after Matt the same way. What's the difference?

"...striking out eight, walking only one, hitting a batter and throwing 85 pitches. Lincecum allowed two runs and five hits, none of which were struck particularly hard, and went to a three-ball count just three time."

Sounds good, but it better be against "A" players.

Community projection day for Matt on McCovey Chronicles!! I'm sure MOC will have some input.

Why wouldn't sitting on a bus help a groin injury to heal? Are buses particularly hard on the groin? Is sitting a bad thing, and Tim should be standing, or lying down? Should he be exercising, or stretching? Most injuries require rest, not work. I'm sitting now and don't feel any strain on my groin at all. Is there a veterinarian in the house?

The Enchanter's hurt
Sprain? Strain? Pain? Rest? What's gained?
Too much info, no?

But, here's some big news from today's Imparcial de Oaxaca on-line version: ex-big league catcher Geronimo Gil will be playing for Los Guerreros de Oaxaca this year!
