Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter

New, 73 comments

Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter. There will be time to quibble about the pitch count. Or maybe not. I sure don't care right now. Maybe I'll wake up in a fireplace, covered in soot, wondering what happened, and that's when I'll worry about the pitch count. Until then ... hot damn, Tim Lincecum. Hot damn.

"Bryan Murphy" will get the recap, and I'll start working on a "50 Awesome Things" post, which is apparently a tradition now.

The list of Giants pitchers to throw a no-hitter:

The Jones and McCormick ones don't count, really. But the important part is that there's a #11 at the top, now. Tim Lincecum, you magnificent bastard.
