Tim Lincecum stepped up at a big time for the Giants today. By totally controlling the best team in the league, Tim stopped yet another losing streak and saved his teammates the discomfort of four days off as COMPLETE LOSERS. The Enchanter was in rare form; yielding only 5 singles, one double, and one walk while recording 9 strikeouts. The numbers don't capture Tim's ability to get the big out at the big time (something I fear I harp on). Today it was a 10 pitch battle against Fukudome to end the the seventh (strikeout swinging) and, of course, Ramirez to end the eighth (double play groundout). I had a real moment of concern when Tim gave up two infield hits in front of Ramirez...3 run homers have killed us this week, Tim included...but I should have known better. It really is all different when Lincecum is on the mound.
NEWS FLASH! It looks like we signed that hot shot Dominican teenager!
WOOHOO!!! I am taking a break, .....starting right now
