    Tim Lincecum's Daddy Comes To His Defense

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-bi...1471--mlb.html

    I just laugh because what does his dad expect his pitching poorly in a bigger market, that comes with the territory.

    The funniest part to me is "He'll want to go away", Tim and his dad need to grow some thicker skin.

    If he thinks the media attention there is bad he should play in Chicago, Philly, Boston, or New York.

    Opinions?

    Lol, if he played in Philly he would have already been crucified. What a joke, that old man should just keep his mouth shut and let Timmy figure it out for himself. Hopefully he figures it out soon because he's been rotting away on my fantasy teams bench.lol

    I know parents get defensive over their kids but you would think from previous examples of parents defending their kids in the media that he would have totally avoided that route.

    It just makes the player look bad for not fighting his own battles, it's a part of baseball to be criticized.

    Not really.

    Even if he went on a roll it would still be an average season.

    When Tim's going wrong, it's mostly mechanical... this year it's a combination of mental and physical (loss of weight this off-season), but his father has always been the one to correct the ship.

    So their relationship is a little different than most if not all starting pitchers in the majors. Chris is also Tim's pitching coach.

    I understand Chris's frustration with the media. Media in general are pretty bad. But its definitely worse in bigger east coast markets. (note: SF market isn't small, its bigger than Boston)

    He needs to learn another pitch such as a sinker. There's been too much chatter about his decreased velocity. To be successful, you need to find other ways to get batters out aside from blowing them away with heaters.

    Orel Hershiser, with a similar delivery and who had a filthy sinker, won 204 games without being able to throw well over 90 mph. So yes, it can be done.

    I don't live in California so I don't know how bad exactly it's gotten for him, but for somebody who has been the worst pitcher in baseball this year it seems like he's still getting a lot of love.

    His dad is just making himself look like a douche. He can't blame us if we get frustrated if we lose 9 of Timmy's starts in a row. We are well aware of what he has done for the franchise, so he has gotten a ****ton of slack from most real fans.

    Oh please. The Giants are not winning games when Lincecum is pitching because on average he is giving up 6 runs per game. Not to mention, the Giants do not have the type of offense that can score 6,7+ runs a game.

    Daddy Lincecum needs to stfu. His son definitely does not look like a "Cy young, all-star" or even a top 10 pitcher in the game right now.

    If only he didn't choke in the post season...he may have gotten his Jason Werth contract. Oh well.

    Yo Timmy Tim Pop! It's what have you done for me lately kind of a sport. Professional sports athletes and parents don't mix.
