What a f@cking weird game!
With towering expectations hovering, the third youngest Opening Day pitcher ever for our Giants had a really shitty outing. Tim Lincecum never got command of his fastball. Seventy-eight pitches later...three tortured innings...and the defending Cy Young stud was done! How f@cking weird is that?
Well, the weirdest part of all is THAT WE WON!!! Three homers (from the gnarly vets) were featured in a TEN RUN attack. (Last year it took us the first 6 games to get 12 runs total.) The BIG HIT was delivered by Travis Ishikawa in the first, though - a clutch three run triple.
At least the bullpen wasn't totally weird today. In fact, I would pick the whole crowd (except Hinshaw) as my POTG. Howry was cool striking out the side, but I liked the quiet 1-2-3 inning that Medders delivered.
A victory is swell, but....that was too weird. My brain hurts. Did we learn something? Does Rowand have a chance? Will Pablo get two hits every game of his career? Will we turn 3 dp's every game?
Is Tim human?
