Start # 27 Loss (7-14) 5 innings (90 pitches) 5 hits 3 runs 2 walk 4 strikeouts
Granted we had very little chance to defeat an impressive Tim Hudson, but, thanks to a once again hapless Tim Lincecum, the contest was over early. So, the Braves salvage a split by whoopin' us 7-3, and we luckily keep our 2 game lead over the smog-suckers. Tim threw approximately 87 pitches in the first inning, give or take a dozen.
Exhaustion is the best word to describe my current attitude towards Tim. I already went through shock, denial, anger, denial again, and then a really short period of apathy. (Sigh, that was nice...) This season has been like a journey through the Rings of Freak Hell and I feel like a newly recovered addict. "Hi, my name is Jon and I am a Freakaholic. I have'nt had a decent dose of Timmeh all season long!" Ah well, no sense in complaining. I guess i will just do what everybody else is doing...wait and see.
The bad: Clay Hensley is el stinko lately. I have no confidence in that guy. Is there a September call-up that can take his place? Please!
