I know, I'm way late. A crazy weekend that just ended a few minutes ago cost me any chance at a timely posting. I fear that everything has been chewed over: Lincecum's capable yet flawed 6 inning, 3 earned runs, 6 hit, 1 walk and 8 strikeout performance, the wonderful defense and an inspiring bullpen showing. However, one tidbit may have been missed by some of you ( and if you are a Freak freak, you definitely need to know this).
Tim made his first career error.
I hear you out there..."No big deal"...yeah sure, easy for you to say! I had visions of a perfect career...no errors! How cool would that have been on Tim's Hall of Fame resume. Seriously though, it did cause me to ponder the great fielding pitchers that we have seen over the years. My favorite from days gone by was Rick Reuschel...more recently Kirk Rueter. How about you guys?? Who was the best fielding Giants pitcher of all time? I adamantly hope that Tim joins the pantheon of Great Fielding Giants Pitchers.
I'm sure they all have at least one error, too.
