SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants ace Tim Lincecum is 0-2 with a 10.54 ERA after three starts this season.

Some Giants fans are nervous, which brought a smile to Phillies manager Charlie Manuel's face.

"If they panic and they don't want him, they can always send him over here," he said before Tuesday's game at AT&T Park. "As a matter of fact, I'll walk over there and show him the way over here. I might pick him up and carry him.

"He's going to be fine. It's early. Things happen. Sometimes things don't go your way and that's kind of what I saw last night. He knows exactly what he's doing. I know people say his velocity is coming down, but we'll see. Three or four more starts and the weather gets better, we'll see where he's at. He's fine. He's good."
