If there is a bright spot in the Giants organization... it's Tim Lincecum... He's been outstanding this year and it shows with his stats. Of ALL the Giants pitchers this season... Lincecum is the ONLY one of them with more than 1 start that has a winning record... and his record is 12-3! Lincecum will be on the short list of NL pitchers in the Cy Young award voting this season... I just hope that the Giants pathetic record doesn't hurt his chances of winning. Lincecum leads all of baseball with 175 K's and is tied with Jake Peavy in the NL with an ERA of 2.68.

Lincecum kind of reminds me of Roy Oswalt... not a big guy, but definitely gets all he can out of his smallish frame. He also has a very nice 12-6 curve ball, much like Roy Oswalt.


Lineup

San Francisco Giants @ Houston Astros

08/12/08 7:05 PM CDT

San Francisco Giants Houston Astros
Randy Winn - RF Kazuo Matsui - 2B
Ivan Ochoa - SS Darin Erstad - RF
Fred Lewis - LF Miguel Tejada - SS
Bengie Molina - C Lance Berkman - 1B
Aaron Rowand - CF Geoff Blum - 3B
John Bowker - 1B Ty Wigginton - LF
Rich Aurilia - 3B Michael Bourn - CF
Emmanuel Burriss - 2B Brad Ausmus - C
Tim Lincecum - P Roy Oswalt - P

I guess Cooper wasn't impressed with Wigginton's home run or his 3 RBI's last night, moving him down to 6th in the lineup. No Pence tonight. I guess Cooper wanted to give him a rest after going 5 for his last 34 AB's(.147 AVG).
