Here is the opening to my Saturday column about Tim Lincecum and his new haircut:


Friday. Giants Media Day. Tim Lincecum walks in with a new look. Call it a new head.

Those long locks that used to hang down his back like laundry — forget them. Gone. Outta here.

His hair is short and neatly combed with a sharp part on the left side. He’s wearing black-rimmed glasses.

I’m thinking he looks like someone I ought to know. A singer, maybe. I’m trying to work this out.

He says he went to Cancun in the offseason with his girlfriend, first time he’s been out of the country except for games in Toronto.

“I didn’t know you wear glasses,” I say.

“It’s more of a look,” he says.

Meaning the glass is plain glass, non-prescription.

    I’m sorry, I disagree with you on several accounts. I believe Tim and Buster answered you. They just didn’t reply as you wanted. They expected you to infer from their comments the answer you sought.
    Tim’s answer indicates he believes/hopes he is a power pitcher.
    People will answer the same question differently. That’s normal, reflecting our individuality as humans. Perspective is relative.
    I’m not saying the answers are accurate, e.g., Tim’s view about being a power pitcher.
    Posey answered your question about his attitude towards catching Lincecum. He simply extrapolated and enlarged his answer to include his attitude towards all pitchers.
    I’d relax a bit, Lowell. It appears that you are interpreting people’s comments more than is necessary.

    Very good piece, you are one of the best writers going! What bothers me though is your constant negative writ ups and rip jobs on harbaugh, balke and roman! Just reading your coloum titles, you would think the ninners were 2-14 the last two years not in the playoffs and almost winning the Super Bowl. Much as you get on harbaugh for poor form, your ax to grind slant makes you look poor and you are better than that! Glad it is giant time but I am also enjoying the warriors!

    He never was asked WHY he lost the weight to begin with. Or why he’s done it now several times.

    And THE question you asked,got him going.you could see on TV he was defensive about being 160. First it was better to weigh more,then he covered by saying 160 can be strongest man in the world. But,that’s not true. And now he’s 170. Contradictory.
    And the other question- if he and Buster are friends? that and his weight were the two replayed answers on all the sports shows.
    Lowell asked them both.

    The Tim and Buster freeze out- where did that start and why does it have legs? I can’t remember reading or hearing of the incident, but sure have been inundated with reminders.
    I love my wife relentlessly. Of course we disagree on things, and once a mutual friend heard us get animated about some now forgotten issue. She spread word around and amongst our friends that weren’t getting along. That took on a life of it’s own, much to our amusement.
    Maybe it’s like that with Tim and Buster.

    I took my 5 year old Grandson to today’s Fanfest. He just wanted to walk on the field. We had a great time along with the multitudes. His favorite part was touching the cars on the left field wall. I recommend a quick visit to the Fanfest to you and other Grandparents.

    He’s starting to look like a Yankee.
    Does clean cut pay more in free agency?

    I think Lincecum wants to sport the Woody Allen nerd intellexual look this season. Better to be perceived as a formidable chess player or jazz aficionado than a Cy Young winner.
