I am an optimist by nature but even this optimist clearly sees that the Giants season is over. I feel they did a noble job this year with all the injuries even in an odd year. With some higher salaried players at the end of their contracts and their solid core of Posey, Bumgarner, Pence, Panik, Crawford, Belt and Duffy their future continues to look good but they do need to pick up a couple of starting pitchers. One player I doubt we will see in Orange and Black is Tim Lincecum.
This card is indicative of how far his star has fallen. I didn't have this card in my collection yet and this Mint Graded version popped up on Sportlots auctions. I put in a minimum bid of 25 cents and received no competition. For the price of a piece of bubblegum plus some shipping I brought home this Bowman Chrome rookie card. Glad to have it in my collection even thought I am not a big fan of graded cards. Maybe some day I will free it from its plastic prison.
Thanks for a great effort this year Giants and thanks for the memories Timmy. I am a firm believer the drafting of you was the start of what has been a great run by the Giants.
