Eh, that’s fake panic. I can’t muster real panic about Tim Lincecum having blister issues because when he realized he was getting a blister he was in the process of striking out 14 dudes and pitching a two-hitter:

Lincecum confirmed to the
Mercury News that his blister problem resurfaced during his dominant
14-strikeout complete game against the Atlanta Braves in the NL Division
Series opener
Oct. 7.

“It’s not a big deal, and we’re taking care of it,” said Lincecum, who has received extensive treatment.

If
the Giants had faced elimination in Game 4 of their division series
Monday, Lincecum was considered iffy to take the ball on short rest.
Manager Bruce Bochy said Lincecum insisted he would have been fine to
pitch if needed.

“It’s under control,” Bochy said.

It would probably be the most depressing thing in the history of things if Lincecum had to leave in, like, the third inning of a 0-0 game because of a blister. But if the Giants don’t seem to be too worried about it, why should we?

    “…has received extensive treatment”
    How “extensive” was the treatment? A band-aid plus neosporin? That cool fake-skin spray? An extra splif?

    “Lassie, go tell coach that I have a blister! Hurry , Girl!”

    It’s obivous your either Philly fans or don’t have a clue about the art of pitching. Lassie & girl, none of you clowns could hit Timmy if he threw left handed!!!

    No one will know if this is true or not until the next start for him. Saturday?

    If he threw me one left handed, i’d hit it. Ohhh wait, the ball, you’re talking about the ball, not …… ok nevermind, you’re probably right.
