Guys named Tim are having quite a month. It began with Tim Duncan’s championship, followed by a couple of Tim’s at the World Cup, Howard and Krul, each defending their country from the invasion of soccer balls into the goal.
The last two weeks has also been about Tim LIncecum. A no hitter, 23.1 shutout innings, 3 wins in 3 starts. All of a sudden, his numbers– 8-5, 3.91 era, 95 ks –are kinda Lincecum like. He’s even looking the part with the longer hair and sans the terrible mustache. We’ll know more next time when he faces Arizona and his nemesis Paul Goldschmidt who has 7 homers and 17 rbis against Timmy in just 26 abs. Arizona has destroyed Lincecum in 3 starts this year. Let’s see if he’s turned the corner into something vintage.
