TIM LINCECUM RUMORS & GOSSIP

Avoiding Home Runs Key to Tim Lincecum’s Resurgence

Meet the new Tim Lincecum. Not at all the same as the old Tim Lincecum. The 2015 version of The Freak more closely resembles the sub-mediocre 2012-14 pitcher in terms of stuff, but is certainly looking a lot like the 2008-11 All-Star in terms of results. Lincecum has brought more than just a fancy new haircut to the season’s first two months. After three straight poor seasons on...

Could 2015 be Tim Lincecum’s Year of Redemption?

(Mandatory Credit: USA TODAY) The MLB strikeout-leading, Cy Young-winning years of Tim Lincecum’s monstrous fastball seem a distant memory, but, after a few solid starts this season, San Francisco Giants fans are wondering—hoping—if perhaps the old “Freak” of yore will make a return. Sadly, the prospect of Lincecum re-emerging as one of baseball’s best pitchers is virtually...

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.

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 […]
