Originally posted by billbird2111: OK, Mods, look: TIMMAY deserves his own thread. We are probably watching the most special Bay Area athlete since Joe Montana ruled Candlemistake Park. He's pretty much proven now that last year was not a fluke, and if Cain flops in the second half, TIMMAY will probably win his second straight Cy Young.
By the time this kid's career is finished, provided he has a long career, he'll be able to line a room with Cy Young Awards, the way Joe lines his room with Super Bowl trophies.
This kid is just GIFTED. Lincecum nights are "must watch TV" for any sports fan. Even hardcore Dodger fans tune in to see The Freak. He's got a no-no going for six or seven innings last night, and that is considered to be an "off night" for TIMMAY?
This kid is special. He stands out. He's no longer a secret. America loves TIMMAY. So, I'm calling it. Right here and now:
TIMMAY for President.
How is he being a homer? It's most likely going to come down to Timmy, Haren and Cain assuming the three of them keep to form.
oh, forgive me for thinking Billingsley, Marquis, and even Johnson are serious contenders right now
billingsley is the only one of those in contention...and when was his last win? he is behind cain and lincecum in every statistical category.
Matt Cain 10-2 115.1 IP, 93K, 1.22 WHIP, 2.42 ERA
Billingsley 9-4 120.1 IP, 115K, 1.20 WHIP, 3.14 ERA
Every statistical category huh? (btw I still think Lincecum makes it. He's a future hall of famer IMO)
Difference is Billingsley's team is 23 games over .500, I would take WS Title everyday over cy young and HOF, but of course the giants have never won 1 is SF so you wouldn't care probably used to losing.
What do the Dodgers team having a better record than the Giants team have to do with Matt Cain being a better pitcher than Chad Billingsley.
Typical losing fan look at individual records/stats for what??? Who cares hes a great pitcher but he was on the team last year and what happend....nathan....
Barry Bonds was on this team for a while what did they win?? NATHAN.
Come on yap all you want about Timmy, worry about getting to the playoffs instead of CY Youngs/HOF Votes.
Isnt the CY Young an individual award?
Dont understand why team success is mentioned when we talk about the cy young.
He was on a losing team last year and won the cy young, because he was (is?) the BEST PITCHER in the league.
