Lincecum To Pitch Opening Day For Giants
Two-time National League Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will, no surprise, start on opening day for the San Francisco Giants.
The Giants open their season at Houston tonight at 6:00 p.m. Central Time (4:00 p.m. Pacific) in a game that will air on ESPN2.
Lincecum, the 2006 Golden Spikes Award winner as a junior at the UW, will square off against a pitcher he is/was commonly compared to: Astros right-hander Roy Oswalt. While both taller and heavier than Lincecum, Oswalt is another pitcher of smaller-than-average stature (for a big-league pitcher) who throw hard, like Lincecum.
In other Opening Day news, former Dawg Sean White will once again be in the Seattle Mariners' bullpen tonight as the M's open in Oakland (7:00 p.m., ESPN). Very quietly, White had a very good season in 2009, going 3-2 with a solid 2.80 ERA over 52 appearances.
