This is a man's game

I've been watching the stirring Giants 10-7 vic over the Cubs and was struck by the amazing stops of line drives made by both relievers in the 10th -- first Shawn Camp on a Gregor Blanco slug-bunt and then Sergio Romo on a scary liner for out no. 2 in the bottom of the inning.

Both total MLB plays -- a reminder how tough the game is. We see that in the first as Tim Lincecum gave up 4 runs and then pitched 4 more scoreless innings. Edwin Jackson, who's on his 10th team I would guess, dazzled like Tim for the first five and then fell apart in the 6th.

Jonah Keri has a long post on Grantland as to what's the matter with Tim and how he needs to adjust not having a 95 mph heater any longer.
