Tim Lincecum: A Pitch F/X Breakdown of The Freak’s Struggles

Tim Lincecum had yet another shaky start last night against the Phillies and although things seemed to settle down over his last 5 innings, the concerns over what is wrong have not. After his first three starts, Lincecum sits at 0-2 with an ERA of 10.54  with a WHIP of 1.90. Last night was the longest start of the year for Lincecum as he lasted 6 innings as opposed to the 7.2 combined...

Giants sign Bumgarner through 2017

Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants have agreed to a new five-year contract through the 2017 season, locking up the lefty through his arbitration years. The deal announced Monday also has options for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. The move keeps San Francisco's top three starters - Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Bumgarner - under contract at least through next season. The...

Bumgarner gets five-year extension

Giants, Madison Bumgarner Agree to Five-Year Contract Extension

Earlier today, the Giants announced that they have agreed to a five-year contract extension with Madison Bumgarner. He’ll be under contract with San Francisco through 2017, and the team also has options for 2018 and 2019 (2018′s a club/vesting option, and 2019 is just a club option). He’s guaranteed $35M, though in the unlikely event that he reaches Super Two status, he’ll...

Giants Extend Madison Bumgarner

The trend of giving out long term deals to premium young players continued today, as the Giants locked up Madison Bumgarner through at least 2017, and the deal gives them team options for both 2018 and 2019. In exchange for long term control over Bumgarner’s future, the Giants guaranteed him $35 million over the next five years, with an additional $5 million possible if it turns...

Giants sign Bumgarner to a five-year extention

The Giants and Madison Bumgarner agreed on a five-year extention through 2017, with a club option in 2018. This was the smartest thing the Giants could have done right now. Bumgarner in my eyes is the best pitcher on the staff. The kid is only 22 years-old, and he's already a world champion. He hasn't even hit his peak of his career yet. Bumgarner is going to be the number...

The Freak Tragedy

Tim Lincecum went six innings and gave up a bongillion runs and has a 10.54 ERA on the year.  He’s either sharing a UCL with Wilson or he’s about to make a turn around.  No pitcher is going to throw a 10.54 ERA without the universe abandoning that whole gravity thing.  And in that case, there would be bigger fish to fry, and we’d have to fry that fish in a Jiffy Pop container...

Giants 4, Phillies 2

Madison Bumgarner backed up his nice new contract with a second straight win, Melky Cabrera hit an RBI triple, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 on Tuesday night. Nate Schierholtz had three hits and drove in a run and Pablo Sandoval doubled leading off the fifth to extend his hitting streak to start the season to 11 games. Bumgarner (2-1), pitching...

Seeing Phillies’ Roy Halladay pitch or My Personal Persuit of Perfection

The matchup was out there: Phillies’ Roy Halladay vs. Giants’ Tim Lincecum. The only problem is that the Phillies were embarking on a 10-day West Coast swing, and Monday’s contest would not start until 10:15 p.m. I had to make it an event. That’s right, late night road trip to see the game at the new XFinity Live, the site of the old Spectrum in Philadelphia. Smack dap next...

The Phils take advantage of a less than stellar Tim Lincecum to score four runs in the first inning, before rolling along behind their own ace, Roy Halladay, to defeat the Giants, 5-2.

The Phils scored four first inning runs against their nemesis Tim Lincecum, before going on to beat the Giants, 5-2. The Phils took the lead in the first as, with two men on, and with one man out, Hunter Pence hits an RBI single, scoring Placido Polanco, who had earlier doubled, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead, while sending Jimmy Rollins, who had just walked, up to second base. The...

Phillies Take Game One, Giants Get Worked By Roy Halladay

Before I say anything, I’ll reiterate what I said in my series preview: I’m not worried about Tim Lincecum and today did nothing to change that. He’s not walking guys, he’s still getting swing-throughs, and today he was victimized by some God-awful defense behind him. So with that out of the way, let’s talk about the game. I refuse to worry until May, and I stand by that...

The First Ten Games: What Have We Learned?

Of course it's early, but so far the numbers are stark and they are not pleasant: ten games played, four wins and six losses, 45 runs scored, 48 runs against. Tied for third place in the National League West with the Colorado Rockies. Oh, and just for the record the Los Angeles Dodgers are 9-1 with a 17 run differential (50 RS, 33 RA).We might as well throw in the other bad...
