Tim Lincecum By Phantom Flex

So this is Tim Lincecum as captured by something called the “Phantom Flex,” which I imagine is like a Polaroid with attitude:

That was quite pleasing to the rods and cones. Also, I know that biology textbooks — even the ones in Texas — say that we all have the same number of muscles, but, no, there’s no way I have as many muscles as Tim Lincecum. Also, Tim Lincecum’s disembodied hips could beat me in a footrace. Also, his cap, his soothing narration, his physical toil — at once grotesque yet very beautiful to me — and the industrial efficiency of the soundtrack all suggest that Red Bull can make me a better man.

(A Red Bull toast: BBTF)

Does he really roll over on his fastball like that? No wonder I never cut it as a pitcher…

Yeah, that was pretty shocking to see how much his hand rolled, also didn’t feel to good when I tried to mimic it in slow-mo. How does he keep from having his arm just snap off at the shoulder?

Are we sure that’s just a fastball?
