Clayton Richard has been great at home (2.72 /1.08) and not so much on the road (6.57 /1.57). SAFECO is technically on the road, but also a pitchers park. should Richard be started against Seattle tonight? he's only had 1 game in SAFECO in 2010 where he went 7 IP, 7 H, 6 K, 1 ER.

Not only is SAFCO a pitcher friendly park, but it's even more so with LHP. I'm spot starting him in one league.

I watched Clay Buchholz during his complete game shutout last start... And I'll say hes looking even BETTER tonight than he did last start. I'm very impressed. His curve and change up are disgustingly good tonight.

Lincecum to the bullpen?
http://tracking.si.com/2012/06/12/tim-l ... itter_feed
In what would qualify as a shocker if the subject were not struggling as much as he is, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy went on Jim Bowden’s show on SiriusXM Radio on Tuesday and acknowledged that he and general manager Brian Sabean have talked about having struggling ace Tim Lincecum either skip a start or even move to the bullpen.


EDIT: rotoworld
Giants manager Bruce Bochy and general manager Brian Sabean have decided against skipping over the struggling Tim Lincecum's next start.
"Right now, best thing is to keep throwing Timmy out there," Bochy said. Jim Bowden of SiriusXM Radio reported earlier Tuesday that Bochy and Sabean's discussions on what to do with the righty included skipping him and even sending him to the bullpen, but they've decided to give him the ball the next time out. Lincecum will bring a 6.00 ERA and 1.58 WHIP into Saturday's start in Seattle.

These guys are just scorching right now and will single-handedly be the reason prospects are drafted, added, and held onto too early and long for the next several seasons :-b

F JP Howell!! Cobb with the intentional walk to put 2 runners on base. Howell lets them both score. F ME Cobb could have done that.
