Tim Lincecum: “Rebounding is Obviously the Biggest Priority on My Mind”

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Tim Lincecum's struggles from a year ago are well-documented. The two-time Cy Young Award winner didn't start during the postseason last year and was relegated to coming out of the bullpen. Lincecum says that opportunity changed his perspective on pitching and now he enters 2013 with nothing on his mind ...

The San Francisco Giants were staring at an 0-2 deficit in the NLDS, their offense was struggling big time, Cincinnati looked like the superior team and history was very much against them. However, San Fran was heading to Cincinnati still feeling good about their chances to find a way to ...

Tim Lincecum: “We felt we underachieved last year and we weren’t where we were supposed to be”

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Tim Lincecum is the perfect example of why your record as a pitcher isn't always indicative of what type of season you've had.  Lincecum had his first losing season with a 13-14 record, yet had the seventh best ERA in baseball at 2.74 and along with Doug Fister (10th) and ...

Barry Zito improved his record to 3-0 on the season after he blanked the Cardinals on three hits over eight innings last Saturday night.  It looks as though he has regained the form he displayed back in ’06 when he signed the largest pitcher contract in baseball history, a $126 ...

Tim Lincecum Could be Looking at the Cy Young Award Three-Peat

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Every time I watch Tim Lincecum pitch, I am wowed.  Not only is he just 25-years-old and is relatively small, he brings it every time he takes the mound and can light up the radar gun as much as anyone in Major League Baseball despite having a really funky delivery.  ...

Tim Lincecum: “I dont even know if I know the magnitude of what just happened.”

Friday, November 20th, 2009

I guess some awards in sports are given to players that might actually deserve the award. I say that because in most sports you have to be on a winning team or it has to be “your” year to win an award. Ask Michael Jordan, was anyone better than him ...

Tim Lincecum: I’m Not Surprised Where We Are

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Tim Lincecum reminds me of one of the many reasons I love sports.  I derive a strange pleasure knowing that he looks like a pre-teenager; actually, he looks a little like my 8-year-old nephew (who is a star in his own right).  One would hear Lincecum's stats and credentials, how ...

Hmmm, Think The Mariners Want A Do Over To Select Tim Lincecum
