Well, Well. Look Who’s Coming To A Nationally Televised Game Near You

https://i2.wp.com/www.badensports.com/images/lincecum.gifThis afternoon, the Giants placed Russ Ortiz on the 15-day disabled list. They recalled infielder/Bellarmine product Kevin Frandsen, but it seems highly probable that the best pitching prospect in America, Tim Lincecum, will get Ortiz’s scheduled Sunday start.

It’s unclear if Ortiz is actually hurt–his alleged injury is “neuritis in his pitching elbow”–but the discrepancy between Ortiz and Lincecum is rather clear.

Ortiz: a record of 1-2, 6.44 ERA; age 32; his last start: eight runs in 3 1/3 innings.

Lincecum: a record of 4-0, 0.29 ERA; age 22; his last start: six innings, 14 strikeouts, zero runs.

The future is here. We are getting absolutely giddy at the prospect of a Cain-Zito-Lincecum-Lowry-Jonathan Sanchez rotation penciled in for the indefinite future.

    You are up on it right now. I hope he pitches Sunday night. At this point, it’s looking like I’m gonna have my best weekend of the year.
