Tim Lincecum’s fall from two-time Cy Young award winner to San Francisco Giants afterthought was a drastic one. But his fall on Thursday night against the Reds was more literal.

Lincecum has always had a bizzare pitching motion. It’s what helped him lead the league in strikeouts in 2008, 2009 and 2010. It also seems, at least since his stats started a sharp downward spiral in 2012, to now be contributing to falling.

Check out this piece of video, because it is funny to watch people – especially people with superior hand-eye coordination and balance – tumble like the rest of us do.
