Tim Lincecum Throws — Sunflower Seeds?!

It’s hard to impress the ol’ teammates. Just ask Tim Lincecum:

After Saturday’s game, Lincecum released this statement via his publicist:

I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.

Which is to say, sometimes you throw a complete game shutout to make some money, sometimes you throw a bunch of sunflower seeds at yo’ mouf to impress, I dunno, is that Ryan Vogelsong?

Hat tip to A. King. No, that’s too obvious. Alexander K.

    Equally interesting are the respective faces of Eli Whiteside, Brandon Crawford, and Hunter Pence.

    I can’t stop laughing.

    I’m still in my cubicle. If I get fired, I demand that Bradley hires me to be his personal assistant. Actually, I’ll be his assistant anyways.

    Are you hiring, Mr. Woodrum?

    I can’t decide if Hunter Pence is secretly the best part of this .gif. I think he is, but that might just be because Hunter Pence and the faces he makes are the best part of every .gif. Even the ones he is technically not shown in; he is there, sticking out his tongue and blinking rapidly offscreen while Shane Victorino gets hit in the head with a return throw or the Astros commit a six-man error.

    Yeah. Hunter Pence.
