Wow absolutely insane contract.
Billbird thinks its brilliant though. The funny thing is............. can you imagine how mad we would all be if the Giants gave up 35 million to a pitcher from another team with the stats he has put up?
It is Sabeans track record though. Overpay every single Giant who helped win a title.. Timmy, Pence, Huff, Scutaro, Affeldt, Pagan. Loyalty is a good thing but sometimes you just have to cut ties if the money is too much. When your minor league system is horrible though that is what happens. You overpay.
I just pray that Timmy is closer to the guy from 3-4 years ago and not from the last 2.
Ugh. At least it's only 2 years. It's impossible for Timmy to live up to this contract.
The most frustrating thing is how Sabean and the Giants always bid against themselves instead of allowing the market to dictate how much LIncecum is worth. It's stupid.
I understand that the Giants had holes in their rotation, but they still should have let Lincecum hit free agency.
