Jason O. Watson/Getty ImagesTim Lincecum needed only 113 pitches to toss a perfect game against the Padres Wednesday.Let’s get two things out of the way right away, and I assure you I have no reason to be biased either for or against San Francisco Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum or the woeful team he no-hit Wednesday, the San Diego Padres:
• Sell high on Lincecum, if that’s even possible. Fast. The no-hitter is hardly the start of something great. The guy wasn’t owned in even 40 percent of ESPN standard leagues entering the day.
• Start pretty much every pitcher against the Padres’ lineup.
