> Tim Lincecum has gotten a haircut. Actually, it appears he has gotten several of them. Back in December, rumors swirled that the San Francisco Giants pitcher had chopped off his long, flowing locks. There was photo evidence at the time, but it was a bit blurry and there were some skeptics who refused to believe it. Now, it’s official. Lincecum was one of the biggest stories...

Today is the day that really started to get my baseball juices flowing. I attended the San Francisco Giants Media Day at AT&T Park. I will get more in depth about the news I learned and interviews in the near future. Below is some notes from Media Day.
As you probably guessed; Hunter Pence was asked a lot of questions about his speech...
ROCK AND ROLL
The San Francisco Giants will be holding a "Metallica Night" during the upcoming season. See what that giveaway night entails.
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum made a change this off-season. He’s gone with the ever-more popular hipster-athlete look.
I don’t think anyone can blame Lincecum for making a change. Even though the Giants won the World Series, ”The Freak” had a terrible year. In 2012 he went 10-15 and gave up a career worst 111 runs.
New year, new look for @timlincecum: twitter...
San Francisco Giants Tim Lincecum is McLovin Meme
The post San Francisco Giants Tim Lincecum is McLovin Meme appeared first on THEHUSKER.COM.
For years now, Tim Lincecum has been sporting some rockin’ hair.
Often saying it was one of the few things in life he could control, Lincecum’s black locks were a big part of his image — no matter how much he looked like Wiley Wiggins playing Mitch in the film Dazed and Confused. Well, now Lincecum has a new look.
On Friday, Lincecum showed up to a Giants team event sporting...
Sergio Romo raced down a tunnel inside AT&T Park on Saturday, slapping hands with a line of supporters chanting his last name during Fan Fest. He danced with some, posed for pictures with others and riled up the rest.
San Francisco's new bearded closer has no trouble in the limelight.
After a dominant and demonstrative performance throughout October, Romo's role for...
Giants fans everywhere were in for a bit of a shock today as their star pitcher revealed that he’s chopped off his signature long locks.
Lincecum is coming off a horrible year, by anyone’s standards, especially his for someone who’s won two Cy Youngs and was apart of the world series winning team.
USA Today posted the pictures of a very sleek-looking Lincecum as he reported...
San Francisco Giants pitcher and two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum unveiled a new look on Friday.Yes, the right-hander showed up to Giants Media Day sporting a drastically different haircut than the one he had previously donned for last season, and the last six years for that matter.Out is the long-hair hipster style and in is the more clean-cut, sophisticated look.The...
Sporting short hair and specs he doesn't need but chooses to complete his new look, Tim Lincecum looked nothing like the hard-throwing San Francisco pitcher the Bay Area has come to know for his shaggy `do and strong arm.
Lincecum drew comparisons Friday ranging from Buddy Holly to Elvis Costello and even Greg Maddux. Silicon Valley smarty, to poet and professor.
When we last saw Tim Lincecum it was in the World Series, still with the “Dazed and Confused” look for which we’ve come to know him. The long hair, the vacant smile. It all made sense when Lincecum got busted for weed a few years back.
But when he appeared in front of the media on Friday, you could barely recognize him. The flowing, often-grimey locks were gone, replaced by...
I was thinking of doing this a couple of weeks ago, but with that football Bowl thing going on, it got pushed back. Now that it’s Spring Training time, we’ll kick off the spring with this series.
For those who don’t know, I spent a decade covering the farm system of the San Francisco Giants for SFDugout.com. Along with other writers, we watched the rise of nearly all the...
Pablo Sandoval has missed significant time in each of the last two seasons, and in the year before that he was underwhelming to say the least. His 2009 campaign, his first year as a full-time starter, was easily his best as Sandoval put up top-50 numbers, and now all fantasy owners really want is a modicum of stability.
I’ve always thought of Sandoval as a switch-hitting version...
San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt took a shot at the free-spending Los Angeles Dodgers while speaking at the team’s “FanFest” event at AT&T Park Saturday.
According to CSN Bay Area, Belt was asked about the Dodgers spending loads of money over the offseason and responded “All I can say is, you can’t buy chemistry.”
Since purchasing the Dodgers last...
