Cliff Lee was bad last night. Real bad. Michael Jackson (here if you didn't get the reference).
Just how historically bad was he? Well… [Hardball Talk]
Based on Game Score, which is a Bill James invention that uses various aspects of a pitcher’s performance to calculate one number representing the strength of each start, Lee’s outing ranks as the 13th-worst in Game 1 history.
Meanwhile, when Juan Uribe hit his home run last night, a bunch of folks in San Francisco got high. Every time a Giants player hits a home run in the World Series, a local bud bank will be giving away a free joint to people in the area. Ahh, the West Coast. Ironic, or maybe not so much, because Tim Lincecum smokes pot. [TMZ]
This kid is going as Ron Washington for Halloween. Funny, because Ron does coke- no really, he does. In a way, you could say Lincecum was a gateway story to this picture. Or something like that.
Finally, Pat Burrell in ass-less chaps.
In case you haven’t seen the video, Brian Wison, who is actually rather hilarious, did an interview with Chris Rose earlier this season and in it had a dude in leather S&M garb walk by in the background. He continuously refers to him as “The Machine.”
The Machine is Pat Burrell. Photographic evidence at TheFightins.com.
UPDATE: SF fans "smoking weed" video after the jump. Thanks to Samantha for the video.
