Tim Lincecum's Declining Strikeout Percentage

Data courtesy of Fangraphs Today's graph illustrates the three month moving average for Tim Lincecum's strikeout percentage since 2008. The graph makes me sad because it just reminds me how awesome a pitcher Lincecum was from 2008 to 2011. Anyway happy Linceum Day, hopefully he regains some of that old magic against the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw today. Looking...

What Happened to Tim Lincecum?

There was a time when Tim Lincecum was the best pitcher in baseball. In his first four seasons, he won two Cy Young awards and a World Series. Watching Lincecum on the mound in 2013, however, is like watching a grandparent with Alzheimer's. He has completely forgotten how to pitch effectively on a consisten basis and it has become extremely sad at this point. After posting an...

This morning Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle said the Dodgers are “on blitzkrieg” to acquire Nolasco...

Padres-Marlins Preview

Whether it's next season or before the trade deadline next month, Ricky Nolasco realizes his time with the Miami Marlins is likely coming to an end. The right-hander could be facing his future employer Friday night when the struggling San Diego Padres try to prevent the Marlins from a season-best fourth straight victory.

Rumor Roundup: Garza, Nolasco, Ethier Updates

Here’s a quick update on some rumors from Dodgertown. Jayson Stark says the Dodgers are not actively dangling right fielder Andre Ethier. Don’t buy it. The Dodgers are shopping him and he stands as the most probable player to get traded in my opinion. I see him going to Boston for two reasons. The Red Sox owe us a favor after last summer, with Boston having the monetary resources...

Two starters, in particular, interest the D...
