Every day or so there seems to be new evidence Albert Pujols will win the Batting Triple Crown. That reminds me, when was the last time you thought about the Pitching Triple Crown?

I can bet it hasn't been since Johan Santana won it in 2006. I don't even remember it being announced when Jake Peavy won it in 2007! Yet here we are halfway through 2009(almost) and guess who can win it? Tim Lincecum.

That's right. The same guy who won the Cy Young award last year. The same guy with the pitching motion that you don't want kids under the age of 13 to see.

You will probably not hear about this unless you are a Giants fan. Although Tim is a popular figure. 

He is on top in Strikeouts, barley behind Dan Haren in ERA, and 1 win from the top spot their.

Tim is on pace for another Cy Young season. Hopefully he can stand on the podium recive the Cy Young with Albert as the MVP then be awarded for each respective Triple Crown.
