Jon Heyman: Tim Lincecum declines 2-year contract from Giants
While it’s possible Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young winner and two-time World Champion with the Giants, could end up elsewhere and maybe even with a longer deal, people familiar with the team’s negotiations suggest the pitcher seemed more interested in a short deal in his dealings with the Giants, for either one or two years.
So, he declined a 2 year deal, but wants a 2 year deal? I wonder how much he’s looking for in those 2 years.

MLB: Last year on this day, the Giants beat the Cardinals in Game 7 to head back to the World Series! Yes, that was the magical, rain globe game.
