The two most important people in my sports fan life right now are Jeff Tedford, CAL's Football Coach, and Tim Lincecum, the SF Giant's stud rookie right handed pitcher. I don't know what I would do without either of them. We can talk about Tedford during football season, but know one thing, I love Tedford and I will not tolerate any criticism of him at all. :)
This entry is about Lincecum and the great Sports Illustrated article that Scott Fausel forwarded onto me. What makes Lincecum special is he throws 98 mph with a nasty curve and change up, and he is about 5-10 and 175 pounds. He's way too small to throw that hard, yet somehow he does. This article by Tom Verducci explores his mechanics and the mechanics of baseball pitchers in general. Great read.
