Lincecum for Cy

>> Friday, November 7, 2008

The San Francisco Giants are a favorite team of ours here at LT&C. (For all you Dodger fans out there; sorry we didn’t grow up down in SO CAL.) We regularly keep up with the going ons and happenings of our beloved pastime. In case you’ve been out of the loop, wonder boy pitcher Tim Lincecum is a candidate for the Cy Young Award this year. Nicknamed “The Franchise” this young gun boasts a major league high of 265 strikeouts for the season. Not to mention he pitched his first complete game shutout this year. In short, he is a force to be reckoned with.

However, he will still have to outshine several strong competitors such as: Arizona’s Brandon Webb (22-7, 3.30 ERA), Milwaukee’s CC Sabathia (11-2, 1.65 ERA after joining the Brewers), Philadelphia’s Brad Lidge (41 for 41 save chances), New York’s Johan Santana (16-7, 2.53 ERA), and a few possible others. Sadly we will have to wait and see what the verdict is in the following days. We wish the best of luck to the young phenom.
