Giants Sign Tim Lincecum – Avoid Arbitration

By Bryan Rose

Well hop skippity and jump, we’ve got excellent news coming in this Friday morning – Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants have avoided arbitration (as many suspected) and agreed to a two year deal worth about 23 million dollars.

The deal breaks down like this: $8 million in 2010, $13 million in 2011 and a $2 million signing bonus, paid out at a million a year.

It’s a bit odd in structure, but, if it works for the Giants and Tim – it works for us.
