An analysis of the struggling Tim Lincecum

As most Giants fans know, the two-time Cy Young award winner, four-time all-star and dazzler on the mound known as Tim Lincecum has not been his self in 2012. Not even close. After yesterdays 5-0 loss to the Texas Rangers (all five runs earned by Lincecum), Lincecum’s ERA is now at an even 6.00 on the year. Before this season, his career ERA stood at an impressive 2.98. Yeah, he...

SF Giants Drop the Ball in 2012 Player Draft

The San Francisco Giants are not just leading Major League Baseball in errors on the field in 2012. The team's scattered attempt to fix their deteriorating and prospect-light minor league system in last week's First Year Player Draft will likely put the organization even deeper in the hole. Currently the Giants' minor league organizational standing is considered mediocre...

Maybe a trip to Seattle is what Lincecum needs

Should the Giants pull Tim Lincecum from the rotation and rest him for a start? In the wake of another Lincecum clunker -- five runs, nine hits, four walks, 5 2/3 innings -- the Giants might consider all options, and one is to sit him out for more than the regular four days and have him get his act together. Sounds like a real possibility. Not now, however. Not when his next...

Another poor outing for Giants' Lincecum

A bad Tim Lincecum start no longer is a rarity. It's part of a trend. Nine hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings? Thirty pitches in the first inning? For a guy who thinks WHIP (walks and hits over innings pitched) is one heck of a stat, Lincecum might not want to see his these days. As manager Bruce Bochy said of Lincecum, whose WHIP is 1.58, ERA is 6.00 and winless streak...

Postgame Wrap: Giants Listen To Advice, Don’t Mess With Texas

In Brian Wilson’s absence, Tim Lincecum has taken it upon himself to make Giants baseball torturous once again. Remember, Torture doesn’t mean bad. Torture means just good enough to hang onto your hopes and your dreams and feel like there’s a reason to wake up each morning. Torture is good pitching and bad hitting, or good hitting and bad pitching, or stranding baserunner...

Postgame Wrap: Dropping Hamiltons

Regression is an ugly buzz word in baseball chatter these days. “X player will regress to the mean after a career year.” “That’s a small sample size, X player will surely regress.” “I regress seeing X3, stupid Brett Ratner.” It doesn’t appear that any of these things apply to Ryan Vogelsong. Nothing he did today was particularly sparkling or overpowering, but the...

Rangers bats wake up late, not enough vs. SF

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Ryan Vogelsong pitched a season-high 7 2-3 innings and won his fifth straight decision, Nate Schierholtz hit an RBI triple and the San Francisco Giants bounced back from their first shutout of the season to beat the Texas Rangers 5-2 on Saturday. Ryan Theriot added an RBI single off Scott Feldman (0-5) while helping Vogelsong (5-2) run his unbeaten streak to...

New shoes lead to sore Achilles for Cruz

SAN FRANCISCO -- Some bad shoes may have led to Nelson Cruz being out of the lineup for Sunday's finale against the San Francisco Giants. The Texas right fielder put on new spikes Thursday in Oakland and started feeling some pain in his right Achilles while walking down the steps at the park. He continued to feel some pain in San Francisco and it got worse. He switched back...

Don't Give Up On Tim Lincecum Just Yet

Photo Credit: Acordova For those of us this year that drafted Tim Lincecum in the early rounds of our fantasy draft or used a nice chunk of our auction budget to pick him up, we are all probably asking ourselves the same question, “Will the real Tim Lincecum please stand up?”Through 12 starts so far this season, Lincecum’s ERA (5.83) is almost double what his career mark ...

MLB: Giants activate Sandoval for start vs. Texas

The San Francisco Giants activated third baseman Pablo Sandoval from the disabled list Saturday and started him against the Texas Rangers at AT&T Park. Sandoval had been out since May 4 surgery on his left hand. He completed a rehab stint Friday for Triple-A Fresno by hitting two home runs. "We think he's ready," manager Bruce Bochy told CSNBayArea.com. "...

Pablo Sandoval back in Giants lineup

Pablo Sandoval came off the disabled list Saturday, insisting he'll get back to his rigorous fitness routine to be at his best for the rest of San Francisco's season.

Rangers shut out Giants again

SAN FRANCISCO -- In a rematch of the 2010 World Series, the Texas Rangers exacted some revenge, pummeling Tim Lincecum, who was the winning pitcher in the deciding game 5 of that World Series. Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton each hit two-run doubles off Lincecum to take the rubber game of the series as the Rangers beat the San Francisco Giants 5-0 on a warm Sunday afternoon. "...

Astros-Giants Preview

Madison Bumgarner didn't have his best stuff last time out, but the San Francisco Giants scored enough runs for him to come away with the win. The left-hander can't count on that happening in Tuesday night's series opener against the visiting Houston Astros considering the way the Giants have struggled at the plate. Looking to win a second straight start after going...
