Giants Talking Multi-year Contract Extension With Tim Lincecum

By Bryan Rose

Apparently, my Inspector Gadget skills aren’t up to par as I couldn’t find anything on CSNBayArea.com – but Greg Papa reported on Chronicle Live that Larry Baer informed CSN Bay Area the Giants are currently engaged in talks with Tim Lincecum for a multi-year contract extension.

I’m assuming by “multi-year” they’re talking three years, which buys out the final two years of arbitration and gives him an additional year in black and orange.

If the Giants are smart (and it is a three year+ deal), they’d backload it for 2013 and 2014 which will give the Zito and Rowand contracts time to expire and free up a few dollars for this coming offseason as well. Either way, hard not to be excited with Lincecum and the Giants brass already in talks for some type of deal.
