Giants, Lincecum still try to work out a deal
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- With an arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday, the Giants are trying to work out a deal to lock up Tim Lincecum with a three-year extension, but there may not be enough cash on the table to get it done.
The Giants have reportedly offered the two-time Cy Young winner a three year, $37 million contract. Lincecum's agent has countered at more than $40 million.
The Giants offer is respectable, but if Lincecum wins the arbitration, he will make $13 million for this season and the dollars are only going to go higher if he keeps pitching well.
Keep in mind--no matter what happens, the Giants own Lincecum's rights for the next four seasons.
