What we're watching: Timmy needs a W

Sep 8, 2009, 4:22 PM EDT

– While he’s turned in five quality starts in the stretch, Tim Lincecum has been limited to one victory in six starts, putting quite a dent into his Cy Young chances. He’ll look to get back on course tonight against a Padres team that has scored more than four runs just once in eight games. Lincecum has dominated the Padres, amassing a 1.67 ERA in 11 starts. However, that’s resulted in just four victories for him.
– It figured to happen during Monday’s doubleheader or tonight’s game, but Derek Jeter is still four hits shy of topping Lou Gehrig’s Yankees record after going 0-for-8 yesterday. He’ll serve as a DH tonight against the Rays’ David Price. He’s currently sitting at 2,718 hits. If he’s going to hit a milestone tonight, it’s more likely to be his 300th career steal. He picked up No. 299 on Sunday.
Game of the Night
Seattle vs. Los Angeles – For the second time in a week, Felix Hernandez and Scott Kazmir will face off. King Felix got the better of Wednesday’s showdown in Seattle, throwing eight scoreless frames in a 3-0 victory. That spoiled the Angels debut of Kazmir, who allowed two runs — one earned — and struck out eight in 6 1/3 innings. This will be the southpaw’s first home start for his new team

    Timmy and Greinke are kind of in the same boat in the win department for their respective Cy Young races, so they can commiserate with each other. Supposedly Greinke has an excuse, though, since he plays on a terrible team. But Lincecum is on a team that’s over .500 and still has strong playoff aspirations, so in some ways it looks even worse on him.

    Interesting take on this, like a sailor I’m constantly keen to learn a lot more about boating.
