Giants Pitching Coach Dave Righetti Talks About Sundays Matchup Between Jon Lester, Tim Lincecum NESN’s Heidi Watney caught up with Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti on Sunday’s Red Sox GameDay Live to get his thoughts about Giants ace Tim Lincecum and Red Sox starter Jon Lester.

“A lot of games have been just like he’s been in the past,” Righetti said of Lincecum. “You get in your fourth, fifth year and guys start to out any way they can beat you.”

Lincecum, the two-time Cy Young Award winner, enters Sunday start with an 8-2 record to go along with a 2.86 ERA.

When asked about Lester, Righetti had nothing but nice things to say about the fellow left-hander.

“I love him,” he said. “He’s got great stuff around the strike zone, and in fact, when I get a chance, I always watch him.”

Righetti talks more about Lester and about his team’s bullpen in the video below.
