Some people are idiots. I'm not just figuring this out. After 30 years on this planet I'm fully aware of mankind's stupidity. This is just another example of it...
ESPN.Com's Sports Nation poll asks voters who had the more dominant postseason debut-
Tim Lincecum- 9 ip, 2 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 14 k
Roy Halladay- 9 ip, 0 h, 0 r, 1 bb, 8 k
As of 10:15 AM 20% of voters chose Timmy over Doc. Are you f'n kidding me?! Halladay tossed only the 2nd, that means him and one other person ever (Don Larsen), no-hitter in the history of the playoffs. Also, he did it against the National League's best offense (Reds). Lincecum's performance was terrific as well, but it was against a struggling Braves team and ended up being just a shutout, something accomplished by many pitchers before him in October. Halladay made history, Lincecum is merely a footnote. 20%, give me a break, idiots! Must have been Orlando Cabrera voting from his Blackberry over and over again.
