After the San Francisco Giants finished off the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday night in Game 6 to advance to their first World Series since the little earthquake incident, the big question was about Tim Lincecum. He faced three batters in a relief appearance and many wondered about his availability as a starter for the final round.
“I fully expect to make the start,” Lincecum said. “It’s not like they told me to get ready for Game 1. They just said, ‘Get ready for your next start.’ So I think that’s what they’re talking about, yeah.”
We’re sure it’s something he can worry about in a day or so. As for Saturday night, he probably just was looking forward to a big, huge bowl filled with Homboldt County’s finest.
“This is unbelievable,” Lincecum said. “It’s pretty surreal. You dream about these things when you’re a kid. You even dream about them when you’re a Major League Baseball player. These things are finally coming to fruition, coming together. When all the pieces come together at once it’s a pretty awesome sight to see, especially with this group of players.”
