Tim Lincecum was always described as a fun teammate during his time with the Giants. Apparently, his time with the Texas Rangers’ Triple-A affiliate in Round Rock was no different.

Lincecum played just 10 games for the Express 2018, but that was enough to leave an impression. He certainly left one on teammate Tyler Wagner, who recounted on Twitter the time Lincecum bet him $1,000 he couldn’t drink an entire container of Italian dressing before a game.

Wagner pulled it off, and actually made more than a thousand for his troubles, with Lincecum throwing in an extra $250 because it was so difficult to watch.

Lincecum might have been known as “The Freak” during his time in the pros, but it looks like he also made those around him act like complete nutcases as well.
