Tim Lincecum has gotten a haircut. Actually, it appears he has gotten several of them. Back in December, rumors swirled that the San Francisco Giants pitcher had chopped off his long, flowing locks. There was photo evidence at the time, but it was a bit blurry and there were some skeptics who refused to believe it. Now, it’s official.
Lincecum was one of the biggest stories from Giants media day on Friday, as every photographer and reporter with a cell phone camera wanted to get a shot of his new boys regular haircut. This angle really gives you the full effect of the comb-over that Timmy has decided to rock:

And alas, an era has come to an end. Whatever luck Lincecum’s long hair may have contained seemed to run out last season, as he posted a 10-15 record and an ERA of 5.18 (which ballooned from the impressive 2.74 he posted in 2011). There were bound to be some drastic changes made in the right-hander’s life, and he probably didn’t want to give up his crazy In-N-Out burger order. Giants fans are hoping the clean-cut look will lead to a bounce-back season.
