Despite a pretty awful regular season, Tim Lincecum seems to be doing all right. The Giants are once again in the NLCS with Big Time Timmy Jim is set to start for the Giants in one of the games. The fans still love him, as do his teammates. It could be his laid back persona, or maybe his charitable endeavors. Or maybe it's because of things like this, which we present without comment.

It's not clear when Tim Lincecum and his girlfriend Ruth broke up. Oddly enough, after the split Lincecum settled in Seattle, where he spends his offseasons now.
