Lincecum throws a WHAT!?!?!?!?

Well assuming that is a reliable source that could be a great thing for him to fall back on if he ever got a serious injury or when he just gets old. That could really lengthen his career.

Yeh, in the last Sports Illustrated in that big write-up on Lincecum he said that he used it only a few times in college but dropped it when he turned pro. He also said in that article that he threw a slider too, but he dropped that pitch as well.

where does it say that because I read that article like 5 times and didn’t see a think about a knuckleball

He didn’t throw any sliders last year, but he’s been throwing them this year. He is also throwing 4-seamers this year.
