This Lincecum fellow isn't bad
Not sure if you noticed or not... but this kid can pitch.
And the Giants made a very interesting statement tonight. They went into Colorado, who were red hot and only lost 3 games all year (and as I wrote earlier, 2 of those losses were extra inning affairs.)
The light hitting Giants made sure the Rockies were down 5 runs before they even came to bat. And Lincecum made sure they didn't get as much as a hit until the 7th inning. By then it was an 8-0 ass whuppin'.
With Ubaldo Jimenez coming off the DL tomorrow, the Rockies can't be too sure what they are going to get from him. And the Giants are throwing Matt Cain on Wednesday.
In other words, the Giants are making a statement.
The Rockies may have the best record in baseball, but the Giants are still the champs.
And this Lincecum kid might have a future.
