Lincecum and Wilson make all star team

So I got an update on my phone as I was walking out of church, and it was great news. Tim Lincecum and Brian Willson had made the all star team! To tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure if I would be seeing Tim in the all star game this year. He hasn’t been at his best, and wasnt playing the way we know him to. To say the least, I was still happy for him. Tim has been selected to pitch for the two previous All Star games.

Wilson has one all star game on his resume. I actually think Wilson did deserve to represent San Fran in the All star game. He has done really good with a 2.10 ERA, and has 22 saves in the season- ranking second in the NL behind Heath Bell.

I wish these two players the best and hope that they will contribute alot in the effort to get a win for the NL!

Timmy is struggling

Sports fanatics,

       The first official sports related entry sadly has to be about something negative. Something mostly every Giants fan has noticed, is that Tim Lincecum is struggling. Struggling and Tim Lincecum shouldnt be used in the same sentence. In this case, it has to. Obviously the two time Cy Young award winner has been dealing with some issues.

       If this was any other pitcher, people probably wouldn’t notice. This is TIM LINCECUM we are talking about! He’s every team’s dream pitcher! Or WAS every team’s dream pitcher. His current ERA IS 3.28 which would be okay for a Matt Cain, or a Santana. Not for the Freak. He has struck out 121 batters which is probably the only thing postive about Tim right now.

        Dont get me wrong, the last thing I want to do is bash about how poorly Tim is playing. I love him to death and hope he gets over this slump soon. Maybe we have all set the expectations too high? Maybe he cant handle all the pressure of living up to the name Cy Young Award Winner. What it is that is really causing problems for Timmy, only time and Tim will tell.

First Entry!

Hello sports fanatics,
This is my frist blog entry! I am so excited to get to share with you guys all my thoughts and opinions about my favorite sports and team! To learn a little about me you can read about me on the left. Like I said in “about me”, I love sports and I dont know what I would do if I didnt have them! As much as I enjoy watching them I also play them. I am very passionate about writing and expressing my ideas. My dream is to persue a career in journalism where I will write about sports, specifically baseball. I hope that I can be an example to all those girls who want to do the same. Many people say girls dont belong in sports, but I would like to prove them wrong. I know just as much, if not more, about sports as any sports fan out there. I am addicted, and I love it!
I hope you will enjoy each of my entries, and that you will keep coming for more. It’s the summer for me, and I think this will be a perfect chance for me to share with you guys all my thoughts about baseball and the Giants!
GO GIANTS!!!
Love, Love, Love,
