The fans sitting down the right-field line cheered when Tim Lincecum warmed up in the bullpen. A much louder roar from 42059 fans serenaded him when he came out of the game in the sixth inning of what would be his seventh win.
The scene so familiar also could be fleeting.
The way the calendar and schedule align the Giants' 6-3 victory against the Pirates on Saturday night might have been Lincecum's third-to-last home start of the season.
Thus even if optimism has risen that Lincecum will return as a free agent fans who have remained so loyal to the man through his struggles should brace for the possibility that they might not be able to cheer for him much longer.

Buster Posey realizes it's just one game. Still, it feels good there may be a few more ahead. It was something the Giants and the up-and-down Tim Lincecum needed.
Posey had three hits, Pablo Sandoval drove in two runs and the San Francisco Giants beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-3 on Saturday night.
''I'll take it,'' Posey said. ''Hopefully we can build...
Matt Cain has no idea how he’ll handle the dead time of being on the 15-day disabled list which is understandable.
The Giants Opening Day starter was placed on the injured list for the first time in his nine-year major league career Friday a day after he suffered a bruised forearm when he was struck by a line drive.
Cain said his arm was feeling a bit better Friday but that...
The San Francisco Giants tested the waters Saturday and placed three players on the revocable waiver wire. They placed Tim Lincecum, Hunter Pence, and Javier Lopez on waivers, and each player was claimed quickly. However, it seems the Giants have no intention of dealing any of them.

The San Francisco Giants (57-72) supported starting pitcher, Tim Lincecum (7-13, 4.55 ERA) in tonight’s win against the NL Central leaders, the Pittsburgh Pirates (76-53).
It’s no secret that Giants’ run support for Lincecum has been weak throughout the season. They have gone just three-for-14 in his last 17 outings and received just 2.42 runs support during this time. Tonight...

In a way I don't blame Giant fans for reacting irrationally after watching their championship team capsize and completely tank this year.
Those of us who reveled in winning the 2010 and 2012 World Series are finding it hard to adjust to shuffling through bumtown in a pair of tattered orange sneakers. While the Los Angeles Dodgers are soaring and have only one big problem...
Madison Bumgarner turned in yet another quality start, and the Giants offense once again failed him, as San Francisco fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-1.
Not surprisingly, the Giants offense got on the board first in an unconventional way. With one out, Buster Posey crushed a double to right-center field for his first extra-base hit in his last 49 at-bats. He advanced to third on...

On this Sunday afternoon, it was the Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong who shut down the Bucs in a 4-0 San...

The outing will be his 13th start of the season, and fourth since returning from DL. In his most recent start against the Boston Red Sox, the right-hander tossed seven innings and allowed...
Dog Days was yesterday, and as I walked around the bleachers, many of the dogs had retreated under the benches for shade. It also really was one of the hottest days I’ve seen at a game this year. I guess it was an appropriate day for the “Dog Days” event.
Didn’t matter. Still one of my favorite events at a Giants game. Especially when it has Ryan Vogelsong back to...
