The Tim Lincecum Freeze-Out is getting a bit tiresome, yeah?
First, some statistics (via the San Jose Mercury News):
Players on the [San Francisco] Giants’ Division Series and NLCS rosters who appeared in a game in those series. The sole exception in both cases was two-time Cy Young-winning pitcher Tim Lincecum.
Along the way, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said this to the Associated Press:
‘‘I’ve been thinking about Timmy, trust me . . . Timmy’s done a lot for us, and we know that.’’
So last night the Giants blew out the Kansas City Royals 7-1 in Game 1 of the World’s Serious and here’s the boxscore (via ESPN).
Seriously, Bruce? You’re “thinking about Timmy” but he doesn’t get into a 7-1 blowout?
Blowout this, eh?
