Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says (via Twitter) GM Brian Sabean is not active in trade talks, and the bullpen could stand-pat. Santiago Casilla and the San Francisco Giants have had conceptual talks about a multi-year deal.
In another tweet, Baggarly says Sabean confirmed that there’s an openness to a multi-year deal with catcher Buster Posey, and not necessarily with outfielder Hunter Pence at this time.
Posey is in the first year of being arbitration eligible, so he’s still under the teams control for another few years. Pence on the other hand is in his final arbitration year. Which means next year he will be testing the free agent market if there is no multi-year deal put in place.
Lincecum is in the final year of his two-year contract. Let’s see what kind of shape he can get himself into for 2013 after working himself out of a starting role in the 2012 playoffs. I’m not knocking the guy, because he was lights out in his reliever role!
