Roundup Of Lincecum Stories
One of the more iconic pictures of the 2010 World Series was that of San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum being carried on the field by his teammates after his team defeated the Texas Rangers in Game 5.
It's great that the rest of the country is also able to see what a special talent Lincecum is, something those of us here at Washington have known for years. The pressure of the big stage never seemed to bother Lincecum, as noted by Giants outfielder Cody Ross to the New York Times earlier this week.
"He was dancing around, singing, doing all his stuff 40 minutes before the game, like he wasn't pitching," Ross said. "That's just how he is. He's a happy-go-lucky guy, doesn't let anything affect him. He's a bulldog, that's why he did what he did."
Since the World Series ended, there's been an impressive amount of copy written about the Giants' ace and former UW star. Here's a sampling of the best ones.
