Mamma mia: Ex-player recounts Lincecum's $1K salad dressing bet

Tim Lincecum always is one for a good time, and that included his final year in professional baseball when he pitched in 10 games of the Texas Rangers' Triple-A affiliate in Round Rock.

Tyler Wagner, one of Lincecum's teammates in Round Rock, shared a hilarious story about Big Time Timmy Jim on Twitter on Thursday. Wagner claims the Giants legend bet him $1,000 that he wouldn't drink an entire container of Italian dressing before their game.

Wagner came through and Lincecum paid up, even throwing in an extra $250 because it was "hard to watch."

Do you want any salad with your dressing, Tyler? Guess not.

Given Lincecum made $102.5 million during his MLB career, the $1,250 was well worth the entertainment value of watching Wagner choke down all that dressing.

Honestly, Wagner should have upped the bet if he knew he was going to come through.

Perhaps Lincecum can buy him one of his odd In-N-Out orders next time the two see each other. It's the least Lincecum can do, right?
