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 the defending World Series champion Giants will go beyond pitching the ninth inning this season. He's one of the franchise's faces now, especially with Brian Wilson and his bushy black beard likely gone, and he's quickly learning about his newfound fame. ''I walk out to go warm up and it's like, `Ahhh!' I'm like, `Wow. I'm getting a big ol' cheer?''' Romo said. ''But then also just walking down the street and the reception that I get. I get recognized all the time now.'' From dancing behind teammates in the dugout on national television t...

Tim Lincecum officially unveils new haircut

> Tim Lincecum has gotten a haircut. Actually, it appears he has gotten several of them.

Tim Lincecum Has a New Look

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...

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...

New-look Lincecum ready for a comeback with Giants

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. A transformed...

2013 Top 10 Prospects: 10 Through 8

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...

Tim Lincecum looks, um, different (Photos)

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...

Player Profile #94: Pablo Sandoval | 3B | SF

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...

Brandon Belt takes shot at Dodgers: ‘You can’t buy chemistry’

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...

What's new in 2013: The bullpen

Well now we get to the fun stuff. That’s right, today we will discuss the “The Bullpen Mafia” as Clevelanders have so affectionately branded the Indians relief corps. Outside of maybe Brian Wilson and Sergio Romo in San Francisco, the Tribe probably has the most unique, fun-loving bunch of characters to ever occupy a major league bullpen. The IBI's Jake Dungan continues...
