Tim Lincecum: Right-Handed Ace Expected to Start Game 1 Against Texas Rangers
According to numerous wire reports, San Francisco Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum is expected to start Game 1 of the 2010 World Series against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
In fact, according to nbcsports.com writer D.J. Short, Lincecum told Barry M. Bloom of MLB.com that he will start on Wednesday despite facing three batters in Saturday's 3-2 San Francisco NLCS victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
“I fully expect to make the start,” Lincecum told MLB.com. “It’s not like they told me to get ready for Game 1. They just said, ‘Get ready for your next start.’ So I think that’s what they’re talking about, yeah.”
But, of course, Saturday's win was all about the celebration.
"This is unbelievable," Lincecum said. "It's pretty surreal. You dream about these things when you're a kid. You even dream about them when you're a Major League Baseball player. These things are finally coming to fruition, coming together. When all the pieces come together at once it's a pretty awesome sight to see, especially with this group of players."
Lincecum and the Giants are slated to face Cliff Lee and the Rangers on Wednesday, October 27, at 7:30 p.m. EST in Game 1 of the 2010 MLB World Series.
