San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy is confident that Tim Lincecum will regain his All-Star form soon. Miami Marlins starter Josh Johnson already has. While Lincecum will try to get back on track Friday night in Miami, Johnson will seek a third straight win. Lincecum (2-4, 6.04 ERA) has allowed four runs in each of his last three outings and didn't make it past the fourth inning in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Oakland. He used up 90 pitches in those four frames and gave up all of his runs in that final inning. Lincecum finished up that frame after a collision at the plate with the A's Collin Cowgill following a wild pitch. After the game, Bochy said he wasn't thinking about skipping the right-hander for one start or sending him to the bullpen. "He throws too well at times to make any move like that," the manager told the team's official website. "Every time he goes out there, I think he's going to have a nice game. He's so close to doing t...

Brandon Belt and Strikeouts

Brandon Belt hasn’t started his season as most would have hoped, as he currently boasts a .227/.346/.330 line. He’s had solid on-base numbers to this point, but he’s failed to hit the ball with much authority — in fact, he has yet to hit his first home run of 2012. Additionally, he’s striking out at a rather high clip — 26.2% of his plate appearances have ended in a strikeout...

SF Giants pitcher Santiago Casilla doesn't want his at-bat anymore (Video)

Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we showed you a clip of Giants pitcher Santiago Casilla drawing a walk with his unique batting stance.

Zito looks like old struggling self

After two innings, the San Francisco Giants trailed 8-0. The game in Milwaukee virtually ended there. They lost 8-5. Is Barry Zito back to his old ways? Zito pitched a clunker in a season he's been surprisingly good. Does the fan base take Wednesday's performance as a blip on the screen? Or the beginning of more struggles for the left-handed pitcher? Zito walked three...

POSTGAME WRAP: Snot To Be

Bumgarner got smacked around quite a bit today. Oh well, the offense didn’t show up anyway. After scoring two touchdowns in the first game in spacious Doc Ellis Park, the Giants have fallen short the last two games against the Fish. Two big innings by the Marlins built leads the Giants just could not overcome. Madison Bumgarner is an all-time great for a pitcher his age. The list...

BP Unfiltered: Buster Posey Was One Year Ago by Sam Miller

It was a year ago today that Scott Cousins ran over Buster Posey. That was such an obnoxious thing, I'm sure we can all agree. Support collisions fine, don't support collisions fine, but we can all support Buster Posey and bipedal locomotion.  By coincidence, today I came across a sports column written about the 1979 All-Star game. The National League won, and Tom Loomis...

Take Roy With A Grain O’ Swalt

I almost made Tim Lincecum today’s Buy. His FIP really isn’t bad. He just always seems to have one bad inning. His numbers with men in scoring position: .346/.471/.547 vs. .243/.313/.379 with none on. But I’m not going to tell you to Buy Lincecum. I’m not sticking my neck out for him! He smokes marijuana! Now, Roy Oswalt I can get lukewarm about! How’s dem apples...

Giants borrow Marlins' 'lo viste' gesture

The San Francisco Giants like the Miami Marlins' celebratory ''lo viste'' gesture so much they've borrowed it. The Marlins signal each other with a sideways V over one eye after a big hit.
