No, that is not the name of the this month's featured product at your local cannabis dispensery. My lovely bride and I took a short trip through the amazing Mendocino coastline yesterday. The scenery was as perfect as Buster Posey's swing. Glorious chilly fog followed by sunny warmth, followed by another bank of fog. Everything was groovy...except maybe those clown announcers (JT has nothing but cliches and Hank was only OK so why should miniHank be any better?). Oh yeah, and the hour traffic jam through Petaluma wasn't so nifty either.
But the game was sweet. Tim Lincecum came through with a gritty performance: 8 innings, 9 hits (ties season high but no homers), 2 runs, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. Another quality start, 15 0f 21, I think. The only really damaging blow was a 2 RBI double by their fricking pitcher!! Timmeh got some help in the 8th from yet another snake mistake but basically he was super tough. Not a ton of strikeouts, which I know worries folk but I sense an attempt to lower his pitch count and walks by pitching for more contact. Tim is going to have to adjust back to the league and I think we will start to see that happen soon. Maybe he'll become a Maddux clone...never know with the Freak.
Of course, the big story continues to be that Buster kid. He's passed Orlando and heading for Willie Mac. His plate discipline gets me HOT! Don't forget to give Sabean all the credit...if he didn't unload Molina, we would still be on BusterWatch.
