This... this I don't believe. You've bought into your own lies.

Thom Brennaman is so ####### pissed at you right now.

A few facts and a bunch of speculation from The Hardball Times.

I'm more excited about this than I should be but it's Timmy.

I'll go out on a limb and project that he'll be better than Jake Peavy

Live stream is off to a start worthy of the back end of the Giants' rotation with black screen and ambient sound.

Now the bullpen has taken over:  just a black screen with no sound

Feed just came in.  Timmy looks comfortable.  It's hard to tell from behind the screen how much he's extending.

No idea how many pitches he just threw but now he's taking a break.

I have a computer and an iPad both connected to the stream.  Provides a nice reverb effect for the ambient sounds.

Camera just pivoted to the crowd.  Higher percentage of white guys in sunglasses than a regular season game

He let a throw from the catcher get by

He threw 20 pitches in the second inning.  Seemed like mostly fastballs but there were also off-speed stuff mixed in.  There wasn't a gun or any commentary so velocity info is unavailable.  His motion seemed a bit more efficient and self-contained.  The stream zoomed to his motion part of the time.  This made it impossible to tell if he was consistently hitting the target.  He had at least two pitches in the second round where he appeared to miss high but he mostly was hitting his spots when they showed the catcher.

never heard of them before, but that looks like a fun place to work.

Jeff Passan‏   @JeffPassan

Sources: Tim Lincecum is deep into talks with the Texas Rangers on a one-year major league deal, and the expectation is it gets done soon. One possible plan for Lincecum: pitch out of the bullpen. And with the Rangers' closer job wide open, he's got a good shot at securing it.

How is he still available in Serious Biz :o

If I end up burning 3 roster spots on prospective Rangers closers only to watch Tim Lincecum fall out of the sky and into the job...

I dunno, I guess that would be too funny for me to be mad about.
