Giants broadcaster Jon Miller caused a stir when he said the Rockies stopped using humidor baseballs late in innings to give themselves an advantage if they were losing. Tim Lincecum apparently agrees.
The Giants ace was perfect through five innings at Coors Field and wound up going eight innings of two-hit ball for the win on Friday night. Colorado’s only run came in the 6th, the same inning in which Lincecum complained about getting a juiced ball from the umpire.
After getting a ball from the umpire, Timmy threw it back, asking for a new ball. Then, he muttered to himself, “****in juiced ball bull****.”
We don’t know if the Rockies really were juicing their balls, but we do know that Lincecum isn’t headed for the bullpen anytime soon despite what a scout said.
