This idea of Lincecum signing with the Bronx Bombers is strictly speculation as a number of big league players, late in their careers tend to want to sign with the Yankees. Lets be honest, the Yankees are baseball. In almost every Little League in America, every little baseball player desires to be on the Yankees.

  • Unfortunately for pitchers, Yankee Stadium has a short porch in right field for left-handed hitters and is not much deeper in left field, leading to a higher home runs rate. Lincecum has been one of the Giants leaders in home runs allowed in each of the past three season, which would not decrease in New York.

    Nevertheless, the Yankees have one pitcher in alcohol rehab in C.C. Sabathia, Michael Pineda who hasn’t pitched a full season since 2011, Masahiro Tanaka fresh off of elbow surgery, and a number of other question marks among their rotation. The Yankees are willing to spend almost anything for players that they want, and $4-5 million would not even put a dent to their pay roll.

    If Lincecum wants his shot at having the limelight and living in the one and only New York City, now may be his chance.
