San Francisco Giants: Tim Lincecum back to the rotation?

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

On Wednesday night Tim Lincecum all but saved the San Francisco Giants' season by tossing 4.1 innings of relief against the Cincinnati Reds, after starter Barry Zito checked out after just 2.2 innings.

The 1998 San Diego Padres (Revisited)

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Readers of this site will know that I'm (more or less) taking the year off from rooting for my beloved San Diego Padres because of a recent team decision to cut ties with a Hall-of-Fame player for no good reason and generally try to suck as much as possible. It's ...
