Found July 20, 2012 on Holdout Sports:

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum became the latest major league baseball player to be caught forgetting the number of outs in an inning during Friday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

In the bottom of the third inning with one out, Lincecum made a nice backhand play to field a grounder from Phillies batter Vance Worley, but then he started walking towards the dugout thinking the inning was over. After realizing there were only two outs, Lincecum turned around and took his "walk of shame" back to the mound.

The Philadelphia crowd had a good laugh, and even Lincecum couldn't help but chuckle at himself. Of course, that's easy to do when a play like that doesn't cost you a run.

This Is Why Tim Lincecum Sucks

As we grow older our bodies break down, our skills deteriorate and — for pitchers — our fastballs lose a little bit of their zip. Fangraphs actually does a great job visualizing this pitcher attrition. Now for me, this means my 70-mph heater will end up in the 62-65-mph range in the coming years, but for Tim Lincecum it’s meant his 95-mph fastball back in 2008 has dropped all...

Bochy: Posey will team with Lincecum again

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy tried to head off any potential mild controversy Friday when he refuted a report by a national baseball writer on Twitter that claimed that Buster Posey would not catch Tim Lincecum the rest of this season. "Completely false," Bochy told reporters before the Giants' 7-2 win at Philadelphia. Eli Whiteside was behind the plate...

Giants' Huff has knee tendinitis

San Francisco Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff's MRI revealed patella tendinitis in his right knee, the club announced Saturday. Huff, who reported pain in the knee Thursday while playing in a rehab assignment game for Class AAA Fresno, will be re-evaluated in San Francisco on Monday. The Giants were preparing to activate him from the disabled list Monday. Huff sprained...

Giants 7, Phillies 2

Brandon Crawford hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, Tim Lincecum threw seven sharp innings and the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 on Friday night. Ryan Howard hit a solo homer for the last-place Phillies, who have lost two in a row after winning four straight. Lincecum (4-10) looked more like the pitcher who was a two-time Cy Young...

Giants' Cabrera is no fan favorite in Atlanta

San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera had a series to remember in Atlanta. Not because of any game-ending hits or homer-preventing catches, but because of his body language, how he irritated the Braves and the apparent tension between Cabrera and Chipper Jones. Cabrera, the All-Star Game MVP last week, was a struggling Brave in 2010, and he didn't exactly get treated...

Both pitchers homer as Giants prevail

All-Star pitchers Cole Hamels and Matt Cain hit homers in the same inning, and Gregor Blanco drove in the tiebreaking run with a drag bunt single in the 10th to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera hit a tying homer off Hamels in the eighth and Buster Posey hit a two-run shot for the NL West-leading...

Postgame Wrap: L.O.B. City

You can read the box score yourself. Hits: Giants 9, Braves 3. Team left on base: Giants 8, Braves 1. Runs: Giants 2, Braves 3. Throw in the fact that Giants players drew two walks and failed to give one out makes this one of the more frustrating games of the season. Tables were set, little shrimp forks were placed just to the left of the salad forks, and the centerpiece was gaudy...

Postgame Wrap: Fantastic Mr. Fox Sports

National broadcasters are an easy target. Hall of Fame announcer Tim McCarver, for example, had a whole website dedicated to his quotes (though it seems to have been taken down). was a hit back in the day, dedicated to its namesake and many others, and other sites have sprung up to immortalize the gems coming from the mouths of the best and brightest. Now, I understand...

Postgame Wrap: Phlippin’ Phantastic

The Giants have a rivalry with the Phillies. I mean, the Giants have a rivalry with a lot of teams: the Dodgers for being from Southern California, the Padres for daring to be good in 2010, the Diamondbacks for daring to be good in 2011, the A’s for sharing a fan base, the Marlins for injury Buster Posey, the Braves for being the toughest competitors in the 2010 playoffs and consistently...

Extending Melky Cabrera

Cross posted from Bay Area Sports Guy: One of the hardest questions as a Giants fan is do you want to offer Melky Carbrera a long term contact. If so, how high would you be willing to go? Complicating the matter is the fact that he has two distinct periods in career, on e in which he has produced at a below average rate and one at an above average rate. Prior to his 2011 stint...

Cain & Hamels Swing For The Fences

Cole Hamels and Matt Cain Go Yard! Who needs a designated hitter when you have multi-million dollar pitchers! In the top of the third inning San Francisco Giants pitcher, Matt Cain struts up to the plate down 1-0 against the Philadelphia Phillies and sends a 1-1 pitch over the left field wall for his first home run of the year and his sixth of his career to even the game at 1. That woke...

Giants Win in Extras, 6-5

Final: Giants 6, Phillies 5. WP: Sergio Romo (3-1, 0.64 ERA) LP: Jonathan Papelbon (2-4, 3.46 ERA) SV: Santiago Casilla (24) On a very action-packed Saturday matinee game, the Phillies ended up on the losing end thanks to a 10th-inning bunt single by Gregor Blanco. Shane Victorino earned his 1,000th career hit, the first Hawaiian to achieve such a feat.  Cole Hamels also hit his...

Dog nearly bites Giants fan at A's game (Video)

Last night was Bark at the Park in Oakland as nearly 720 dogs took in the New York Yankees/Oakland Athletics baseball game. During said game, a San Francisco Giants fan in attendance attempted to pet a Saint Bernard in the set in front of him. It looks like the dog noticed that he was a Giants fan and proceeded to nearly bite him: Your browser does not support iframes...
