BEST OF MAXIM
LITTLE OFF THE TOP
> 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...
With Spring Training vastly approaching, Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com shared with us the San Francisco Giants non-roster invitees.
There is seventeen pitchers, five catchers, six infielders and two outfielders that have been invited to camp. These are the non-roster players. All players on the 40-man roster automatically receive big league camp invites.

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...
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...
The San Francisco Giants announced Wednesday evening that they have signed RP Sergio Romo to a two-year deal worth a reported $9 million dollars. The deal allowed the Giants to wrap up all of their arbitration cases before any hearing were required. The move allows Romo to become a free agent after the 2014 season.
Romo recorded 14 saves last season for the Giants with a 1.79 ERA...
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...
