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)
