        I know.  He isn't a Royal, and has little chance of ever being one.  To link this talented pitcher to Kansas City would be a long a drawn out process.  But to link him to myself, on a basis of the fact that I write about baseball....  Pretty easy.  So if you will indulge me, I will proceed.
        I have been reading about Tim Lincecum, seeing interviews,  and watching high lights of him; but I had yet to watch him pitch a game.  I recieved the opportunity by indulging in the 1st game of the Giant's Post Season against the Atlanta Braves- and I took it up.  To say I was impressed would be an understatement.  The Braves were only able to get two hits on the guy in nine innings, and his wind-up showed me that in a short, skinny, guy can pitch at high velocity  and get ton of movement on the ball.
        As I became more interested in him after watching him pitch, I found he and I had more in common with him than just having long hair and being named Tim.  His nick name is "The Freak", just as my former classmates and co-workers entitle me.  He also does not like crowds and prefers his work to speak for him, just like me.  I just do my work with a keyboard instead of a ball and glove
          Good luck Tim Lincecum and the SF Giants and you chase The Pennant and the World Series Title.
