Sexy Phillies Opponent of the Series: Tim Lincecum, SF

 I know, I know. I’ve heard it all, from guys and girls alike. About his hair, his teeth, his scrawny 5’ 11”, 170lb frame, his penchant for illegal substances. But I love him anyway. So I’m prepared for the insults I know are coming my way. But for this series’ Sexy Opponent, I give you…

Tim Lincecum, P
San Francisco Giants #55

Timothy LeRoy Lincecum is a native of Bellevue, WA and was taught the delivery that earned him the nickname “The Freak” by his similarly-built dad.  He has been mowing down batters his whole life, spending just double-digit innings in the minors before quickly becoming the staff ace of the Giants. The 25-year-old is the reigning NL Cy Young winner for the second consecutive year. His pitching style is one that’s all his own, constantly analyzed and never figured out.

He’s definitely not the definition of “Sexy” or “hottie,” but for some reason I’ve had the hots for him since his college years. I was lucky enough to catch his ML debut right here at Citizens Bank Park (which he lost), and that only reinforced just how sexy I thought he was. His dominance is amazingly sexy, but there’s something about the laid-back attitude, the long, wild black hair, his skinny, short little powerful body, his crooked teeth, and his love of flannel and beanies I just can’t get over. In the fall of 2009, he was busted for speeding and pot, so he definitely has a bit of a bad boy side.  He’s also the star of several hilarious commercials.

Let me try to convince you…

And for Michelle, a preview of a post that will occur later this season – Tim and his other very Sexy teammate, pitcher Barry Zito!

  2. hahaha he looks kinda like a ferret^^

  3. Ever since I can remember, I’ve followed baseball. I’ve studied historical stats, unhealthily obsessed over the Philies, & played several seasons of fantasy baseball. I actually quit playing fantasy baseball in 2008 because I couldn’t bring myself to root for players against the Philies any longer. Then they won the World Series. Coincidence? I doubt it. What I am saying is that I thought I knew all there was to know about baseball.

    Today I learned who the Sexy Opponent Of The Phillies is & perhaps my baseball knowledge is complete.

    • Do we need to start a “Phillies wives & girlfriends” feature for you? =)

    • Oh the things you’ll learn from the ladies on this blog…

      • Vague innuendo FTW!

  4. Who knew that the most arguably “sexy” opponent would garner the most comments thus far?

  5. i always thought he looked kinda meth-y, no?

  6. Ew. That is all

  7. Every single part is this article is another reason you ladies are fantastic. I’ve been questioned for years on my “weird crush” on Lincecum and everything I think was completely validated here. I’ve said it before, a low ERA totally does it for me.

  8. It’s amazing. I have a thing for guys with facial hair, but I also have a penchant for tall, skinny guys as well. Lincecum is absolutely adorable.
