Originally posted by Niners99: there are 2 players in the bay area that MUST stay with their current teams for the rest of their careers. this city has 2 HOF players, playing at an elite level before theyve even hit prime age, and if both are healthy, will go down as one of the best to ever play his sport.
Tim Lincecum and Patrick Willis MUST stay here. pay them what they want. its so rare to find talent like this, and for them to both be drafted and developed by the Giants and 49ers, it makes it extra awesome. i would be utterly disgusted with either of those franchises if we lose either player. inexcusable.
i have a very strong feeling that the Giants will pay for Lincecum. the Giants are notorious for keeping fan favorites a long time. they love pleasing the paying fanbase, which is part of whats great about being a Giants fan. plus they cant get away with paying Zito 126 mil and not giving Lincecum like 160. Sabean would need a police escort out of the state.
im a bit more worried about the Niners and Willis, simply because i dont think they understand what kind of an impact player they have. i can see them backing down and being cheap when push came to shove at the negotiating table. i hope im wrong, but they need to hurry up and lock him up long term so we can all breath easy.
Who gives a flying fudgsicle about the Giants, this is the Niners webzone!!!
