Preview – Lord Lincecum To Slay Rockies?

By Bryan Rose

Holy shit, I hope so…

For you weather reporters out there, it was 94 degrees at first pitch last night and will be in the upper 90’s again today, which means you can pretty much ignore the whole “humidor” thing. Even with Lincecum on the mound today, it’s going to be a struggle more likely than not. A routine pop up to second base is going to be a 481 moon shot. I’m just warning you…

First pitch between Lincecum and Ubaldo Jimenez is at 12:10 Giant time. Put your seat belts on…

Also of note from last nights game – Freddy Sanchez. He’s not going to play. Again. The team expects Sanchez to most likely be available Monday or Tuesday. And I expect him to be hurt again Wednesday or Thursday. Cause that’s just how things go.

And one other facepalm? You know how Velez was benched last night due to his struggles?

"Bochy had become so accustomed to writing Velez’s name in the lineup that he accidentally scribbled him in as the leadoff hitter when he gave his card to bench coach Ron Wotus."
