I hope everyone had a nice Christmas, and now it’s time to get back to the San Francisco Giants news/rumors etc.
The Giants and ace Tim Lincecum are in contract negotiations. Which makes since, so they don’t have to go through the arbitration process.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says a gap still exists in the Giants and Lincecum talks. The Giants offered Lincecum 4-years ($80 million) in the past few weeks. Lincecum is believed to be seeking an 8-year deal. Heyman says, people familiar with the contract negotiations says both sides are weighing one and two-year options now.
Lincecum is arbitration eligible for the next two years, and hits free agency in 2014. The Giants are looking to lock him up, and take away some of his free agent years.
Reynolds Sports Management says (via twitter) their client Boof Bonser has signed a minor league deal with the Giants. Bonser was drafted by the Giants in the 1st round (21st overall) in the 2000 draft. In 2003 Bonser was part of a package deal that went to the Twins for catcher A.J. Pierzynski.
What’s your thoughts on locking Lincecum up, and Bonser coming back to where it all began?
