Tim Hudson warns Tim Lincecum about relying too much on “sexy” strikeouts
Tim Hudson beat Tim Lincecum last night and after the game had some advice for the struggling Freak.
After noting that Lincecum’s velocity seems to be fine, he observed that, like a young Tim Hudson, perhaps Lincecum just needs to be more aggressive in the strike zone, letting hitters put the ball in play more, sacrificing some strikeouts for good old fashioned outs:
Hudson added: “Lincecum’s shower shoes have fungus on them ... If he wins 20 in the show, he can let the fungus grow back and the press’ll think he’s colorful. Until he wins 20 in the show, however, it means he’s a slob.”
