Perhaps I'm being rather over critical, but I'm a little peeved at how Tim Lincecum (13-14, YUCK) lost control of, and then, lost the game. No big deal since the game was meaningless, but it was a chance for us to regain some dignity. Yeah right, like that was going to happen this year.
Specifically, I'm disappointed that Tim let the beaning of Justin Upton get to him. I know it is scary when the helmet is involved and people go down in a heap. And I'm not saying he deserved to get plugged, but Upton crowds the plate and getting hit is part of his game. I believe that was #18 this year which ranks him third. Yet it really rattled Tim. Lincecum admitted that it effected his approach for the rest of his mediocre outing. Anybody else think that is sort of lame for "big time" MLB pitcher? I know Timmeh isn't Bob Gibson, but we sure could have used some grit from our "ace."
I guess this is a poor time to assess the complicated 2011 Tim Lincecum season. What with me being so pissy and all. We may have wait until I've regained some composure...how does February sound?
