Tim Kawakami did a good interview with Tim Lincecum which I will link to in a moment. We were in the Giants clubhouse in Cincy interviewing Barry Zito and Tim snuck over to Lincecum and got a fabulous one on one. Good for Tim.

It was a miracle we were there in the first place, Tim, Dan Brown, Alex Pavlovic and I took a 6:10 am flight from SFO on Monday — not a lot of sleep Sunday night. We flew to Philly because US Air has some strange routing. Then we jumped on a flight back to Cincy, grabbed a cab and got to Great American Ball Park just as media availability was starting. After we wrote we went to a brew pub to celebrate the birthdays of Tim and Dan, both Oct. 8.

    Boy you ARE a good friend. THAT interview was as fluffy as it gets. Nothing about his fathers tirades,his loss of that 100 mill contract,his “too small” start of the year-and I quote pitching coach Righetti on that..or.well I really could come up with some huge questions right up to Why have you fallen-whats YOUR explanation Tim? (Lincecum).
    I guess my inquisitive,probing(no giggles) nature would make me a lousy writer and buddy to sports stars.

    I have critical of Tim’s attitude concerning
    his role with the Giants, but he seems level headed here.

    good comments from Stan

    I read the piece in this mornings fish wrap and couldn’t help but wish Timmy would would get ticked and start throwing things. He should be ticked, at someone, probably mostly himself. A little passion after this disappointing season would be refreshing. After all, it’s clear the rotation misses having a dominant #1 like in ’10. It just sets the tone and the others fall in line. For me, this is the biggest difference in this year’s playoff run/failure. It’s not about which order our bevy of #2 starters should be rolled out.

    The ultimate test, aside from a urine sample, will be how he responds next season.

    No wonder you still have 10 pounds or more to lose! Do the playoffs add extra weight? Maybe this is just the Thanksgiving warmup…
