Mike Timlin: Instant karma’s gonna get you

Not that Mike Timlin’s a guy who believes in karma, but its been five days since Timlin decided to blame the team’s woes on an offense that’s scored the third most runs in baseball: “We’ve been throwing the ball really well. I’m not calling anybody out, but we haven’t scored a whole lot. We’re pitching well, we’re holding teams down, and they’re doing the same to us.”

Since then, Timlin has faced nine hitters. Seven have reached base, on two singles, two doubles, two walks, and a hit batsman. He’s inherited three runners; all of them scored. And he’s giving up five earned runs. Tonight he put two men on with three pitches.

I’m assuming that Timlin doesn’t spend a lot of time hanging out with Jason Lee. But if he did, I’d bet he’d be looking both ways before he crossed the street.
