The Littlest Power Pitchers: Giants at Phillies Game Thread, September 3, 2009

New, 243 comments

The final Phillies-Giants game of the regular season will pit reigning Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum against three-time Cy Young Award winner Pedro Martinez.

Between the two of these guys, probably 300 lbs. soaking wet (okay exaggerating a little). The scouting prejudice against small-statured right-handed power pitchers -- a group that includes Pedro Martinez, one of the three or four best pitchers of the last half century, if not the best, and Tim Lincecum, arguably the best pitcher in baseball today -- is ill-advised at best.

Discuss the game below.
