Tim Lincecum 'going back into the rotation'

Bruce Bochy said it. Let's dissect it. Bruce Bochy and Brian Sabean gave a State of the Giants press conference on Thursday, in which they discussed Pablo Sandoval, Pablo Sandoval's extension, and the possibility of re-signing Pablo Sandoval. However, Bochy also noted something that caught me off guard. Bochy on Lincecum: "Timmy, I see him going back in the rotation. We have a need there. That’s fair to say." — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) November 6, 2014 That is most certainly not what I was expecting to read. After Lincecum was removed from the rotation following his August 23...

The best photos of the 2014 San Francisco Giants

In 2014, the phrase “even years” took on a new meaning for Giants fans. After a season of the usual torture, the Giants brought home their third World Series championship in the last five years.  It was an up-and-down season. There were slumps and streaks and everything in between — a Lincecum no-hitter, a cameo

Key San Francisco Giants from three World Series champions

The Giants' players change from Lincecum to Scutaro to Bumgarner, but Buster Posey behind the plate has been a constant in all three World Series titles.

Thoughts at the end of the 2014 World Series

The Giants won their third World Series title in the last half-decade last night. If that’s not a dynasty in this parity filled age of baseball, I don’t know what is. They rode Madison Bumgarner’s left arm to the championship just like they rode Tim Lincecum in 2010 and Matt Cain in 2012. As good […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogThoughts at the end of the 2014 World Series The post Thoughts at the end of the 2014 World Series appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Are we on the cusp of doom?

I'm not sure if a third Giants World Series can further marginalize the A's in the Bay Area sports landscape. At this point it might even help. Watching the fans, the team and the city of San Francisco get into the Giants postseason is fascinating in a way. The team's home is secured for the next 100 years or so. Stars like Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, Madison Bumgarner, Sergio Romo and Tim Lincecum are still around from the first WS. They have a beautiful ballpark and the seventh highest payroll in baseball. Their owners don't mind spending to retain their talent, because they know the...

Tim Lincecum ready to go, Bochy could use him

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,...

World Series Game 3 lineups, plus updates on Lincecum and the bullpen

Tim Lincecum will throw before the game to test his sore lower back one more time, but his MRI came back clean and the Giants anticipate him being available. “It sounds like he’s good to go,” manager Bruce Bochy said.… Continue Reading → 

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...
