3 Waiver Wire Adds, Week 7

The last time I wrote this post I touted two Giants, Tim Lincecum and Brandon Crawford. Since then Lincecum pitched a gem in his first start out, and an uneven appearance against the Reds with way too many walks. I’m buying into Lincecum, and I think this is the beginning of a second carrer for him as a different kind of pitcher. As for Crawford, he’s been tearing the cover off...

WATCH: Tim Lincecum slips during delivery, eats it

Tim Lincecum tried so hard to strike out Marlon Byrd on Thursday night that he lost his footing and hurled a wild pitch toward home plate that no hitter would have considered swinging at. With a runner on second base, and a 3-2 count on Byrd, Lincecum was looking for a strikeout. However, things didn’t turn out exactly how he had hoped. Lincecum has a violent windup and unorthodox...

Tim Lincecum has problems staying upright on the mound

Tim Lincecum isn’t the same guy he was a few years ago, when he won back to back NL Cy Young awards. But even at his worst, Lincecum has been able to stand upright on the mound…well, until tonight in Cincinnati, of course. #Awkward — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) May 15, 2015 That went down as a wild pitch, and not a balk. Somehow, the Reds didn’t score...

The New and Improved Tim Lincecum

Since 2012 Tim Lincecum has been left for dead — the fantasy equivalent of road kill. Over that three-year span Lincecum has a 4.76 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Without the pedigree of being Tim Lincecum he would have been dumped from the Giants sometime in 2013, but when you are “The Freak” and have the track record of five previous stellar years, you not only get to stay in the...

Tim Lincecum’s last best chance

What you probably already know is that next winter’s free agent starting pitching crop has the potential to be historic, not only due to the amount of talent currently unsigned beyond 2015 but for the hundreds of millions of dollars they’ll surely command. With the obvious caveat that extensions for some of these guys are […]
