Ryan Vogelsong, Freak Whisperer. That moniker is gaining steam on the Internet and Twitter after cameras showed Vogelsong talking to a frustrated Tim Lincecum after a three-run first inning in Oakland on June 22 extended Lincecum's season of woe. Lincecum statistically had been one of the worst pitchers in baseball. Since that chat with Vogelsong, Lincecum has not allowed a run and will carry a 12-inning shutout streak into Tuesday's start against the Nationals.
