Tim Lincecum ready to go, Bochy could use him

The forgotten man of the bullpen might be a part of the regular reliever carousel. Tim Lincecum left Game 2 with a back injury after retiring five consecutive batters, which was just about the most anticlimactic postseason debut imaginable. After an MRI didn't show a substantial problem, the reports are that Lincecum's back feels much better before Game 3. From Henry Schulman: For Lincecum to pitch, his back has to feel good, and Bochy said it is. Although the Giants will wait to see how Lincecum feels when he plays catch later, Bochy said, "It looks like he’s good to go." And, yes,...

Bochy reveals Lincecum’s status, how he might adjust bullpen

Manager Bruce Bochy plans to adjust his middle relief, which might mean less Jean Machi In the wake of Wednesday’s Game 2 loss, manager Bruce Bochy said he is ready to adjust how he handles middle relief for the rest of the World Series. In other words, less Jean Machi and Hunter Strickland, more Tim Lincecum and Yusmeiro Petit. “This game is about adjustments,” Bochy said, “whether you’re a player, coach or manager. We might have to make adjustments in that area, which guys we’ll go to early, bringing Petit and Lincecum into that mix even though they haven’t done it earlier.”...

San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 10/24

There's no link in dumping, you'll get no reply You know what would be good? If the Giants won, like, three straight games. Starting tonight. They should do that. World Series: Buster Posey and the art of catchingSure, we all love Buster Posey, but what do the pitchers on the Giants think of him? You'll be surprised to learn that, when they were interviewed by a reporter for an article in a newspaper, the pitching staff was universally effusive. Even Tim Lincecum, who we all know hates Posey and often stabs at him from hell's heart, dug down deep and found a compliment to bestow upon him....

Hudson ready for long-awaited World Series debut

Tim Hudson leads active major-league pitchers with 214 career victories. Some quick perspective: That’s 75 more wins than Jake Peavy’s total (139) and more than twice as many as Tim Lincecum (101) and Matt Cain (95). But while those veterans became fixtures of recent Octobers, carving out World Series moments and memories on baseball’s biggest stage, Hudson sat and watched. Until now. Finally, at age 39 – after years of wondering if he would get the chance – he will make his first World Series start Friday in Game 3. Hudson takes the mound in China Basin at a pivotal moment, with...

Lincecum’s status for Game 3 of World Series remains in doubt

For a long/middle reliever who has pitched only once this postseason, Tim Lincecum sure drew a lot of attention Thursday at China Basin.

Royals rout SF Giants in Game 2; Lincecum hurt in postseason debut

Kansas City, Mo. – Fans had clamored to see Tim Lincecum in a postseason game. They finally got their wish Wednesday night in Game 2 of the World Series, even if the familiar sight of his whip-like delivery meant something had gone haywire for the Giants. Indeed, Lincecum entered in the seventh inning of a 7-2 Royals victory after Kansas City smoked Jake Peavy and a gaggle of relievers for five runs in the sixth to break a 2-2 tie. The inning got heated when rookie Hunter Strickland allowed a two-run Salvador Perez double and two-run Omar Infante homer, then got into a tiff with Perez after...
