Lincecum: "F*ck this juiced ball bullsh–"
Yeah, I know that’s Buster Posey‘s motto, but if you watched Friday night’s game between the G-men and the Rockies, no doubt you saw what thousands of others did:
With Miguel Olivo batting in the sixth inning of a scoreless tie, Lincecum looked down at a baseball he was trying to rub up, frowned and asked the umpire for a new ball.
As umpire Laz Diaz reached for a replacement, Timmy muttered something else to himself:
“F*ck this juiced ball bullshit.”
Check out the video (it’s at the 0:25 mark) below:
Lincecum took the new ball and proceeded to strike Olivo out and the first-place Giants handed the Rockies their fifth straight loss, 2-1.
Lincecum was his masterful self, throwing eight strong innings of two hit ball while striking out nine and walking none.
You may remember that — earlier this season – Giants Hall-of-Fame broadcaster Jon Miller accused the Rockies of manipulating the supply of humidor-stored baseballs at Coors Field to suit their needs in certain game situations.
My momma always told me cheaters never win, and you know what? She’s right.
