How good was Lincecum's performance? Via ESPN, we can confirm our suspicions - his 31 swinging strikes is the highest total by any pitcher all season, beating Brandon Morrow's May 5th effort by five. He bested his own personal previous high by ten. He beat Felix Hernandez's season high by 13. He beat CC Sabathia's season high by 15. He beat Roy Halladay's season high by ten.

Tim Lincecum beat everybody and turned in not only the best start of his career - it was arguably the most dominant start in postseason baseball history. Not bad for a playoff debut.

Not sure if this makes you feel better or worse? Yeah.
