    You know it, I know it, and more importantly, Timmy knows it. And I don't think he'll like it. Here's hoping the competitor in Timmy rises up and figures out what's going on with him and he gets back to being the ace.

      lincecum gave up 8 first-inning runs in all of his starts last season. just 8.
      in three 2012 starts he has now given up 9 first-inning runs. comparing those two scenarios makes us wonder aloud "what's up?!"
      it's anybody's guess as to what.

      once outta the first inning lincecum seems to be ok. not quite what we are used to marvel at, but better'n just decent. again, it's anybody's guess as to why.

      interesting that after throwing no slideballs during the spring and in his first two starts lincecum threw about 20 or so against philly on monday night. bochy had explained it away a week 'n a half ago as lincecum (paraphrasing) "saving his arm for the season," which was met by "huh? in march and april?"

      so, something's up.*

        Is that some sort of record?

          No. The Giants once hit into SEVEN double plays on May 4th, 1969.

              returning to matt cain for a moment:
              he retired the first seven phillies last night.
              that made it a streak of 34 of 35 batters grabbing pine in his last three starts.

                This Mets-Giants series has been weird. Given the Mets talent of stranding baserunners and the Giants' inability to hit, I expect several low scoring games.

                    The Giants look like they may get swept by the Reds. Not a good way to end a otherwise good road trip.

                      Wow, the Giants pull it out in the 9th. Better to be lucky than just good. They now come home after w 4-3 road trip. Go Giants beat the Padres.

                          Not a bad outing for a guy who'd lost it.

                          This was for all the haters out there, atta boy Timmy! Now just wait till you really hit your stride!

                            I agree. It was a tad early to write off a two time CYA winner.

                              It's becoming clearer that Timmy's issues are in his head and not his arm. How a guy like that would lose his confidence is beyond me, but pitching 8 good innings has to help.

                              BTW, congrats to Brandon Belt for getting the 2 out hit with RISP (a rarity for the Giants). That's the kind of hitting I was hoping for from him.

                                The real question is how often it will happen? I hope you are right, but only time will tell.:crossfingers:
