Tim Lincecum would appreciate a different baseball

There's much internet speculation regarding San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum's reaction to getting a ball he didn't like during a start Friday night against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

The long-haired ace appeared to mouth the words "juiced ball" as he tossed the offending orb back toward the home-plate umpire.

Giants announcer Jon Miller accused the Rockies of slipping non-humidor balls into play earlier this season. This, of course, would make them fly much further, helping the hometown team.

He repeated the concern to the San Francisco Chronicle, giving this story/non-story legs.

Reporters apparently were unable to address the issue after the game, which the division-leading Giants held on to win, 2-1.

The Rockies have denied any funny business is going on.
