Yes, I went Crazy Town on you. Look, the more and more you do this, the more you realize there are good title days and bad title days. And let me tell you this friends. Today is an amazing day. You know what the opposite of amazing is? Tim Lincecum in your left ocular region. Even though his star had been dimming slowly each year since 2009, many if not most did not predict such a precipitous drop. And when I say drop, it's a landing that made a convincing doo-doo splat, but with fake dubstep. I feel like I am just too close to up-WUB you. You know, that’s a good ZZZZUHHHH CHUHHHHHHH BZZZZZZZAAAAAA Doo-doo splat! WAAAAAAW WAAAAAAAAWA WAWAAAHHHH!!!! During the two seasons before 2012, his strikeout rate dropped while his walk rate increased, both trending in a non-zesty direction. While he had a slight up-tick in his fastball velocity in 2011, the improved velocity did not show up in his SwStr% (swinging strike percentage), scoring a 10.7% from a 11.0%. It was an unlikely proposition that he would ever return to a 10.0+ K% pitcher, but it was rational to expect at least a strike out per inning while still holding league average control and still inducing grounders at an above average rate. After all, those three things are still ingredients for a top of the rotation starter.The post Under The Greydar: Lincecum My Baby, Butterfly, Sugar, Crazy! appeared first on Fantasy Baseball Blog at Razzball.com.

He’s definitely not satisfied with how he’s performed with the San Francisco Giants.
Pence hit .219 with the Giants during the regular season, and .210 in...
A dominant playoff performance out of San Francisco’s bullpen en route to a World Championship might have saved Tim Linceum‘s fantasy value. Still, that one month doesn’t forgive the other six in which Lincecum tortured fantasy owners.
For the third straight year his walk rate rose, and for the second straight year his ground ball rate declined. Lincecum’s 14.0% HR/FB rate...

I was always taught that sometimes in life especially when things get tough you should be able to laugh at yourself or your circumstances.

Today everyone is having a laugh. Yesterday on the Adam Corolla Show, San Francisco...
