In his nine-year career, San Francisco Giants’ pitcher Tim Lincecum has done just about everything a player can wish to accomplish in a career. He’s earned the individual accolades, winning two Cy Young Awards, in back-to-back seasons nonetheless, earning four All-Star nods, including a start in 2009, and throwing two no-hitters, also in back-to-back seasons, and against the same team.

There’s the team accomplishments as well. Lincecum has been part of three long postseason runs, some more involved than others, and has hoisted a World Series trophy each time. His trophy case is bursting with all of his awards and honors.

But Lincecum’s career has been in a downward spiral for a few years now. He’s no longer one of the most feared pitchers in baseball, no longer blowing away hitters with hard heat and nasty breaking balls. His time with the Giants may soon be coming to an end, and with him on the disabled list, the only thing we can do now is reminisce on the many good times that Lincecum has given Giants’ fans.

So let’s look back at some of the greatest games in Lincecum’s illustrious career.
