I didn't see the whole game, but Timmy's box score...anyway, FP said that he thinks he wasn't sharp because of his complete game last week. Any thoughts, Dirty?
Good eye for ol' pumpkin head huh? Glad Torres capitalized on it and kept the momentum in the Giants favor. It's sweep time in LA!
Lincecum only threw 110 pitches to complete that shutout, so I wouldn’t think that’s the reason. Maybe the reason he was throwing 94 in the first game after the break was the extra rest. And maybe he was throwing 90-91 last night because he was throwing on regular rest. I think it’s safe to say that he’s not going to consistently throw as hard as he used to, not even close really.
His curveball hasn’t been very effective this year and his changeup hasn’t been as effective. He hasn’t been pounding the zone with his fastball because he either can’t, or isn’t comfortable doing so with his diminished velocity. It’s a mystery.
