One mistake costs Mike Leake as Giants' rally in ninth comes up short vs. Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas – Asked about the move to acquire Mike Leake, Tim Lincecum joked that the Giants have cornered the market on 5-foot-10 right-handers. Leake is most certainly a backcourt player. He’s no taller than Lincecum, Jake Peavy or Tim… Continue Reading → The post One mistake costs Mike Leake as Giants' rally in ninth comes up short vs. Rangers appeared first on Giants Extra.

Lincecum vows to return this season

ARLINGTON, Texas — Tim Lincecum, who hasn’t appeared in a game since June 27, is confident he’ll pitch again this season. “Yeah, definitely,” Lincecum said. “With the way I’m progressing and with the way my throwing program has been going, I don’t see any reason why not.” Speaking Saturday for the first time since being diagnosed with a degenerative condition in his hips, Lincecum said he has good and not-so-good days but the injury “doesn’t scream surgery.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Tim Lincecum, speaking Saturday for the first time since being diagnosed with degenerative hips, was confident he’ll pitch again this season. “Yeah, definitely,” Lincecum said. “With the way I’m progressing and with the way my throwing program has been going, I don’t see why not.” Lincecum threw off flat ground before Saturday’s Giants-Rangers game, 50 to 60 throws from 60, 75, 90 and 115 feet, and said he felt fine.

Giants Splash: Trade talk with Bruce Bochy (plus updates on Aoki, Lincecum)

Trade talk with Bruce Bochy (plus updates on Aoki, Lincecum) “Right now I don’t seen anything,” Bochy said, so I just keep my focus on these 25 guys we have. Bochy went down his roster and said, You know, I feel pretty good. If you look at our club . . . in the outfield, you’ve got (Hunter) Pence, (Angel) Pagan, we’re getting (Nori) Aoki back, (Gregor) Blanco. If something makes sense and makes us better I know something will get done.

Lincecum’s hip problem common as athletes age

Lincecum’s hip problem common as athletes age SAN DIEGO — There is no nifty forensic test to determine whether Tim Lincecum’s big-twisting, long-striding delivery caused the degenerative labrum tearing in both of his hips. More relevant is whether the condition will impact his ability to repeat that delivery as he resumes his career. “It’s been a little more difficult for him to loosen his hips as it was when he was younger,” manager Bruce Bochy said. Lincecum is supposed to start playing catch in four days and eventually throw off a mound. Sports medicine specialists will...

The ominous news about Tim Lincecum's hip condition

In which you realize that you never want to hear the words "degenerative things" applied to one of your all-time favorite players. Yesterday during his regular pre-game session with the media, Bruce Bochy acknowledged that Tim Lincecum went to Tennessee to see a hip specialist. More specifically, that Lincecum had "degenerative things" going on in both hips. This is terrifying news. It's not terrifying because the Giants were counting on Lincecum to have some sort of renaissance this season. Those were clearly unrealistic wishes, and they've been clearly unrealistic since before the season...

GIANTS 4, DODGERS 0 We're having an awful lot of trouble beating the Giants this year, and a second-consecutive shutout at Big Phone Park doesn't help any. Brett Anderson may have had 7 Ks, but we lost to frickin' Timmeh Lincecum for pete's sake. Surely we can score ONE run off these losers, right?
