Humble Pie for Timmy

Henry Schulman of the SF Chron explains that Tim Lincecum was so desperate to make his pitching motion work that he turned to his dad.

I'm thinking "What took you so long?" But that's easy for me to say  

He said a very Tim-like thing -- 
“It’s kind of like a kid with a bad report card,” Lincecum said. “You can’t hide it from (your parents) all summer, can you?”

 Lincecum’s inability to repeat his mechanics has been the main reason he has struggled. He still had the stuff to no-hit the San Diego Padres for a second season in a row last year but could not consistenlty pitch well. By season’s end, he was in the bullpen and was practically an afterthought in the postseason.
