08:13 AM ET 10.22 | According to a report from the other side of the country, San Francisco's one-time ace Tim Lincecum would be available this offseason, something Brian Sabean shot down publicly on Sunday. "Timmy's going to be a Giant," said Sabean, reminding that his contract has one year remaining. On whether he sees Lincecum improving in next year's rotation. Sabean said, "I think so. He set the bar so high. We set the bar so high with him. He's got to learn what it's like to be knocked down. ... Is it a situation similar to 2010 when Lincecum turned around his game from August to September? "No, this is more of a function of willing to accept the delivery he's going to use to be a successful pitcher. He's going to have to pitch more to contact."

Timmy's going to Taco Bell after a lengthy session with his hookah, a bag of 10 tacos really hits the spot when you've got the munchies.

After a snack...

... he'll be back. And he will DOMINATE!

It is always amazing to me that all of these players find themselves and get their act together on their contract year.

You smoke tobacco out of a hookah, dude. Hunger suppressant.

Brian Wilson makes Tim look normal.

The report was from the Boston Globe. It is amazing the number of newspapers that want to trade players who are under contract and who aren't available.

A naturally thin guy like Lincecum may need to pay a little more attention to diet in order to keep his weight up. And he may need to work on his delivery a bit. The Giants would be dumb to trade him now; his value is low. If he regains his form next year, they can decide whether to trade or try to resign him.

HA!

Fair enough. Generally speaking, people don't smoke cannabis out of hookahs as it is terribly inefficient. And typically if they're going to put some evil herb in there (most often hash), it's mixed with tobacco.

he, lincecum needs to learn the process through ups and downs, not everything should be piece of cake,,,,

Chances of Lincecum in a Giants uniform next year 100%. If he returns to form it'll be 100% for the ensuing years.
