Tim Lincecum missed World Series intros because he was throwing up

Tim Lincecum was absent from introductions prior to Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night, and now we know why: the two-time Cy Young Award winner was sick.

CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly pointed out Lincecum’s absence on Tuesday night and did not have an explanation from San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy, who was unaware of the pitcher’s absence. On Wednesday, Bochy said it was because Big Time Timmy Jim was throwing up.

Not only did Lincecum miss the intros, he also watched the game from the dugout instead of the bullpen, where he usually would watch.

Lincecum said this about missing intros.

“I just didn’t want to go out there after it had started,” Lincecum said via Baggarly.

If Lincecum wasn’t even the starting pitcher, it’s hard to believe he’d be throwing up before the game because of nerves. Maybe he was throwing up because he had some of his famous, insane In-N-Out order.
