Congratulations Timmy On A Smoking Performance
Now I'm not suggesting that Timmy had smoked some sticky icky before going out to the mound yesterday and throwing a one walk no-hitter but 'The Freak' sure looked like his old safe, except for the caterpillar mustache, with every pitch in his arsenal hitting its target and mowing down hitters one-two-three.
Tim Lincecum was Major League Baseball's man of the day with an incredible winning performance that reminded fans and opponents alike, that 'The Freak' can still get his freak on in any given game. The San Francisco Giants were in need of such a reminder after a harsh last few weeks that saw their double digit NL West lead dwindle down to just three.
The final out would be fielded by newly called up second baseman Joe Panik, the kid from my neck of the woods in upstate New York. John Jay Joe didn't have a hit yesterday but his glove contributed to sealing the deal on a historic no-hitter. What rook wouldn't wish for a chance to be a part of a smoking Timmy No-No? Say it is so Joe, you just experienced a no hitting celebration in your fifth game as a major leaguer. Wow!
