Giants’ Tim Lincecum needs MRI on lower back/side after leaving Game 2 - CBSSports.com

I was wondering when we’d see The Freak. I guess that’s all we are going to get.

Bochy not ready to announce Lincecum decision

Opening Day thru June 20: 15 GS, 82.7 IP, 4.90 ERA
June 25 (no-hitter) thru July 22: 5 GS, 38 IP, 0.95 ERA
July 25 thru August 23: 6 GS, 24.7 IP, 9.49 ERA

I have no idea what to make of this. (Or, for that matter, of Lincecum’s pic on his B-R page.)

Who will start [for the Giants] Thursday? “TBA.” [Manager Bruce] Bochy has talked to Dave Righetti and Brian Sabean, but he won’t announce anything until after he gets a chance to talk to Tim Lincecum…

[Yusmeiro] Petit is off-limits anyway after throwing 4 1/3 yesterday, and he probably won’t be used tomorrow, either. That means we’ll almost certainly have to wait to see if Petit extends an amazing streak. He has retired 38 consecutive batters, seven short of Mark Buehrle’s MLB record…

If Petit is moved to the rotation, Bochy would slide Juan Gutierrez or Lincecum into the long relief role…

“Timmy really takes it so hard,” Bochy said. “He feels like he let everybody down … he’s taking it extremely hard.”

Schoenfield: Lincecum still has it, at least against Padres

To be honest, I’m not sure if this says more about Tim Lincecum or the struggling, offensively inept San Diego Padres.

I mean, if you were to grade each no-hitter on a degree of difficulty scale from 1 to 10, factoring in the strength of the opponent, the ballpark and the weather, a no-hitter against the Padres at AT&T Park on a gray, hazy day would have to be a 1.

Still ... a no-hitter is a no-hitter, they’re always fun and there’s always a good story behind each one. Retiring 27 major league hitters without giving up a hit is a terrific accomplishment, even if no-hitters have become more prevalent in recent seasons and even if this one came against one of the worst offensive teams (maybe the worst) in modern history.
