A couple of weeks ago I joked to my wife about how hard it was to come up with new ways to describe Tim's domination of the league. I will never do that again. I can't tell you how much I wish I had to write another one of those.
Tim Lincecum pretty much gave away tonight's game against the Nats. His second consecutive low quality start only lasted 4.2 innings but took 96 pitches (first game below 100 this year). The anemic Nats scored 6 runs with 6 hits, but the real killing blows came from the 5 walks, one HBP, and FOUR stolen bases. Tim's obvious weakness concerning holding runners has never been more evident than tonight and it doesn't figure to get any better soon.
The bottom line was that it was painful to listen to Tim pitch tonight. I don't think I've ever felt that way before.
BTW: My "Let Timmy Smoke" shirt is now 5-1. It may skip the next start; a huge matchup on the holiday.
