I’m not gonna lie to you guys and say I watched all of this game. Danny and I both had to work today and there was no way to get my employer to shut off the 57-inch HD TVs to prevent spoilers. But my DVR skim stops include: The Lincecum-Billingsley collision, the Hector Sanchez dive, Uribe’s at-bat in the 7th, and the 9th inning. Oh and every run-scoring play. I just love those. Let’s do today in note form: -Brian Wilson needs to stay out of the press box. Last time he visited Kruk and Kuip, Tim Lincecum got sweet chin music from Colin Cowgill. Today, a burly man named Billingsley had an opportunity to unseat Timmy. Thank goodness Todd Coffey doesn’t run the bases. -Hector Sanchez made one of the best plays by a catcher in the history of the Giants. Early in the season, there was much dismay on this site about Hector Sanchez’s cringe-worthy defense. Too many balls were getting by him. One did today, but overall his work behind the plate has been competent of the late, which is the a...

Postgame Wrap: Barry Zito, Giants Defeat LA

Before Tim Lincecum became Barry Zito, Barry Zito was Tim Lincecum. Given Barry Zito’s horrid career on the Giants, it’s easy to forget that he used to be really quite good. Vintage Zito wasn’t quite as dominant as vintage Lincecum, but he was the model of reliability, posting 3-something ERAs almost every year, while never missing a start. The contract that he signed was absolutely...

Revisiting The Committee

Also, Ryan Vogelsong going deep into games can be part of the committee.  And maybe, hoping beyond hope, Tim Lincecum can do that, too. Santiago Casilla got the save last night, but boy, he didn’t instill a lot of faith in anyone.  Not Bruce Bochy.  One walk was enough to get Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez going in the bullpen.  And not the fans, who gave a cheer for Romo popping...
