    Anyone watching the Giants/Phils game?

    Very interested in seeing Tim Lincecum start. #1 Draft pick a year ago for the Giants. I think he will have the same results that Bailey did in the Spring. JMO. Like this kid a lot, just think it's too early.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I am watching...VERY excited about a Lincecum/Hamels match-up. Nice seeing Lincecum recover from the hanger to Victorino to K Utley and Howard.

    27 pitches in the 1st. To be expected. Got to get those nerves out of the way. Rollins gave him a nice welcome don't you think?

    Interested in seeing him get through the 4th and 5th. I want to see what types of adjustments he'll make to the 1-5 hitters.

    He whiffed Utley, Howard and Rowand. It will be interesting to see what adjustments they make to him.

    Can somebody explain to me why we passed on Lincecum for Stubbs?

    Because Stubbs can hit game winning HR's in low A at the same age.

    Probably the same reason other teams passed on him.

    Looks like Howard made an adjustment! This is a great example of talent vs. experience. These are the games I will actually watch.

    Nice buzzer to Burrell!

    He walked the batter in front of Howard.

    Don't give Selig any ideas. Next thing you know Major Leagues games will be played like the hitting challenges from MLB the Show.
