An open letter to Roy Halladay

Posted by Jonathan @ RGB Cards | Posted in ,

Dear Doc,

Just remember, until there's an announcement otherwise, I'm still the NL Cy Young Award winner.

Message received and responded to, bitch!

Sincerely yours,
The Freak

On a night in front of the largest crowd in AT&T Park history for a game that actually counted (only the All-Star Game crowd was bigger), Tim Lincecum went out and pitched the best game of his career, and quite possibly the best game in Giants franchise history.

14 strikeouts. Two hits. Only one walk. And stretches were he retired eight, nine and ten consecutive batters. 119 pitches (including 19 of them in the first inning) and wrapped up in a tidy 2 hours, 26 minutes. Tim Lincecum sent a message tonight, and that message is, Roy Halladay isn't the only premier pitcher in the National League.

What's up, Doc? The Freak, that's what's up.

No, I'm not making this post because I'm a bitter Reds fan. I'm making it because I'm a big-time Lincecum fan. That's it.
