Filthy as usual
Lincecum was filthy against the Dodgers today, just like usual. Last week when Timmy was pitching in some rainy weather, I hit rewind to have a second look at a shot of Timmy's flowing locks blowing in the wind between pitches. Cali howled with laughter and threatened to tell everyone we know. No need - I'm not ashamed of my man crush. It should be a federal holiday every time Tim Lincecum pitches. Bottom line is that big league hitters look silly every time Timmy is on the bump. Can he win a third consecutive Cy Young Award this year? You better believe it.
Speaking of silly, here are a couple lighter moments from America's pastime:
- On August 22, 2007 the Rangers beat the Orioles 30-3. In one of the better quotes you'll ever hear, Orioles' third baseman Kevin Millar was asked about the record-breaking beatdown and he replied, "I mean, what do you say? Do you say, 'OK, guys, let's hit four grand slams -- and we'll only be losing by 11?'"
- On Opening Night of the season this year, the Yankees' Chan Ho Park came into the game and got tattooed by the Red Sox, giving up 3 runs in less than an inning to lose the game for the Yanks. When he was asked afterwards about the poor outing, he had a pretty good explanation.
