Quote of the Day: Tim Lincecum on icing his arm
Did the Giants' Tim Lincecum break with personal habit and ice his arm following his 148-pitch no-hitter on Saturday night? Let's find out.
Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum is the rare pitcher who never ices his arm after a start. Never. Surely, though, after throwing a career-high 148 pitches during the course of his Saturday no-hitter against the Padres, Lincecum would relent and apply so ice to his throbbing wing, right?
Well, here's CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly with the answer ...
Lincecum didn't ice his arm? "No," he said. "Not even in the drinks I didn't have last night."— Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) July 14, 2013
Mr. Lincecum made no fewer than two statements of fact within this quote. I believe him about exactly one of them.
