For the Independence Day weekend, Major League baseball players are wearing patriotic caps. I think the red bills with white crowns look good, and from the highlights I saw last evening think they go better with most uniforms than previous models. The caps that were used in 2009 were heavy on the red. The new version is more understated and more likely to complement than clash.
Here’s a photo of the San Francisco Giants’ Tim Lincecum grinning as he walks off the mound. Lincecum, who got pounded by the Rockies in Denver last night, hasn’t had much to smile about lately. The dominating starts that characterized his first two full seasons and the early part of this season have mysteriously stopped. The Giants, in a horrid slump, fell to Colorado last night for their seventh consecutive loss.
Today, they face Ubaldo Jimenez — who has pushed aside Lincecum as the best pitcher in the National League and, perhaps, all of baseball.
