i think the overpay on Pence was worse myself. I guess hometown discounts are a thing of the past.

Agreed however 35 mil for a guy with the least amount of wins over the last 2 years than any other pitcher in baseball. In a list that includes Barry Zito that's pretty f**king bad.

I'm not mad or anything but it's pretty typical for this FO.

I dont disagree. Its going to be interesting to see what guys like Arroyo, Jiminez, Garza, and Santana get on the open market because they really all had better years than Timmy.

Yes, Tim can still get pretty high in SF.
Compared to what the Dodgers are about to overpay for Kershaw? This is chump change.

Plus -- it's only two years. If Timmay flames out -- at least he won't be hanging around for seven years like Zito.

I'd say this was a rather brilliant move. It keeps the pressure on Tim to produce. He can't get all fat n' happy with a long-term deal.

What are you guys complaining about?

What about Gaudin? By Lincecum standards we should give him 30 mil/year.
relax.. it's a 2 year deal which is the most important thing.. i like it

Well... Kershaw is the best SP in the majors and is in the very beginning of his prime, and Lincecum has left his prime and has had an ERA well over 4 for the past two seasons. Bad comparison.
So now the only question is who do we sign to fill out the rotation and what do we do in LF?
I'm glad he's back, but Jesus Christ at the price.
I'm okay with the contract since it's temporary but that's a load of mula.

Glad to have Timmy back
