Now that the season is fading into the sunset, our beloved Giants are showing signs of their old self. I know, too little, too late. But at least they are fun to watch again! Last night's 3-2 tenth inning victory over the pesky rookies is a great example. I will admit that exhaustion kept me from seeing the end, yet I had a good feeling when I turned it off. Strange, a " good " feeling is not the norm for 2013.
A high quality start from Tim Lincecum ( 8 innings, 2 runs, and a strong finish ), combined with high quality clutch hitting by Brandon Belt made for a nifty win. I am not a huge Belt fan but I have to give him his props. His streaky hitting is hard to live with but it looks like the adjustments are making that less obvious. His future looks bright, indeed. Master Lincecum also seems to be on the right track, however it is much harder to be optimistic about his future. It is my feeling that we should RE-SIGN Tim. I realize that may be tough ( especially if he wants many years ) but we have so many holes already, a missing starter would be huge. Tim has morphed into a good #3 starter and that is a hole no one can afford.
