Congrats to Lincecum on his no-no


Recommended Posts

He'll probably struggle in his next few starts (or at least in his next start). In 2010, when E. Jackson threw a 150 pitch no-hitter, he struggled in his next five starts.  

If he does, and he probably will, there will be no way of knowing whether it's because of the pitch count or because he's going back to the craptastic form he's had the last two years.

Off season will be interesting for Lincecum........he turned down a huge extension contract offered about a year ago or so by SF thinking he was headed to a big pay day and then had that off-season last year and is not the pitcher he was.......now he pitches a No Hitter but really has not been that impressive this season.

 

He did come alive in the playoffs / post-season last year and did very well as a set up relief guy -- pitched very effectively in that role.

 

SF Giants not likely to re-sign him so he'll be up for the highest bidder and I'm sure teams will over-bid for him paying for his PAST two Cy Young Awards rather than his future role as a third/fourth starter rotation guy..........Might he wind up back in the Pacific Northwest??

Tigers, Others Interested In Lincecum As A Reliever
By Mark Polishuk [July 15 at 6:14pm CST]

Several teams, including the Tigers, have interest in acquiring Tim Lincecum from the Giants but as a relief pitcher instead of a starter, FOX Sports' Jon Paul Morosi reports.  Lincecum has only made one regular season relief appearance in his seven-year Major League career, but he allowed just one run over 13 relief innings during the Giants' postseason run last October.  Though Lincecum returned to the San Francisco rotation this year, Morosi notes that he may eventually be tabbed for a bullpen role in the future.
