BBQ Too Hot to Handle for Lincecum
Wednesday, November 6th, 2013
Sausages starting pitcher Tim Lincecum required medical attention yesterday after severely burning himself while barbecuing at his home. Lincecum suffered first and second degree burns when a flame from the grill he was using suddenly shot up his right arm. "It was a pretty scary scene," said teammate Mike J Adams, who was with Lincecum when the accident occurred. "I thought it was going to totally engulf him for a moment." The fire also singed Tim Lincecum's hair and eyebrows, but luckily failed to ignite the shirt he was wearing at the time. "It honestly could have been much worse," said Adams. The injury will reportedly keep Lincecum out of action for anywhere from 3 weeks up to a month, but doctors expect the burns to fully heal.

Local Kid Helps Brewer Rediscover Old Stroke
Saturday, November 2nd, 2013
Tim Brewer has always given back to his hometown community of Choctaw, Oklahoma. That's why every offseason, he appears at a local baseball clinic to help young baseball players learn the game.

But this offseason, a student and fan became the teacher.

After Brewer showed 12-year-old Anthony Youngly the 'proper' batting stance and swing, Youngly responded by saying, "But that's not what you do!"

After the Old El Paso Tacos right fielder laughed him off, Youngly pulled out his phone and pulled up an old video of Brewer taking an at bat just a couple of years earlier during a game.

After watching a few more videos, the surprised Brewer sheepishly admitted that the kid was right.

"My approach has noticeably changed since I came up in the league a few years ago. My swing has become shorter and isn't nearly as natural," Brewer said.

When asked what he planned to do after spring started, the RF was adamant.

"I want to get back to basics. It may have taken a local kid to pull me out of poor hitting mechanics but now I'll be working harder than ever to get back to where I once was. In the meantime, I'll be sending that kid a personal thank you and signing up to do a baseball clinic in Choctaw, Oklahoma again next year," he said. "After all, who knows what I'll learn about myself."
