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.
