Congrats to Lincecum. And like several other no-nos I have seen over the past couple of years, a great job by the outfielder (in this case, Hunter Pence)to save it for him. I hope Lincecum rewards him with a nice steak dinner or something for that awesome catch in the eighth.
Lincecum has actually been pretty good this year, if you look at the advanced metrics and not at his real-life ERA. He's just been pretty unlucky so far....until last night.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
Guess I haven't seen the Giants play in awhile. When did Lincecum cut the old locks?
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Hall of Fame was a lock already for Mariano, but finishing for the Yankees is about your spot in Monument Park, for him and Jeter. Not that they wouldn't get in eventually, but there's some added cache to being a career Yankee.
