Lincecum Free Agent

Recommended Posts

Nobody will be signing him until later in the off season....putting on a showcase in Jan, wonder if he can really regain some velocity:

Tim Lincecum (hip) plans to hold a showcase for interested teams in January.

Lincecum underwent surgery in September to repair a torn labrum in his hip and fix an impingement. His rehab process is ahead of schedule and he could receive clearance to begin throwing when he visits his surgeon for a follow-up in December. The hope is that he might be able to regain some velocity now that his hip pain is gone.

I mentioned him a month or so ago as someone I'd consider on a contract with very low base and large incentives with a team option for a 2nd year.

What types of incentives are permitted?

OOOOOOOOOOOO 2016

Timmy got $40 Million for 2012 and 2013.

Timmy got $35 Million for 2014 and 2015.

What will he get as a free agent for 2016 (and perhaps) 2017 ???

Tim Lincecum Eyes February Showcase: Giants Seem a Dark Horse

(By John Shea)

I saw that article, was going to post the link. But you beat me to it.

I wonder if Tim would be some sort of DD sort of reclamation project. Maybe he should sign him for an incentive-laden deal.

Most of us have tried to forget Rowell....yet Timmy and his uncanny ability to win Cy Youngs and World Series rings has made this rather difficult.

Here is something we all forget, which softens the blow a bit....from wiki...you just can't figure out drafting...

Lincecum was selected by the Chicago Cubs of the NL in the 48th round (1,408th overall) of the 2003 MLB Draft, but did not sign.[7] He decided to attend college instead, and was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 42nd round (1,261st overall) upon re-entering the draft in 2005, but rejected an offer including a $700,000 signing bonus.[6] The next year, he was drafted tenth overall by the San Francisco Giants, becoming the first player from the University of Washington to be taken in the first round.[2] He signed for a $2.025 million signing bonus on June 30, which at the time was the most the organization had ever paid to any amateur player.[8][a]

    • One thing about the "Old" days, between WTOP  and WBAL AM radio had the areas pretty well coverage, and at night, WBAL could get some pretty nice skips down to southern md and PA.
    • I’m old enough to remember when the NBA draft was ten rounds; now it’s two.    The NFL draft was 17 rounds in 1975; today its 7 rounds.        Baseball is a different beast, but I’m not surprised they’d like to cut the draft way back.      Interestingly, I decided to look back on our past drafts to see how many late round picks made the majors.    In the very first year I looked at, 2000, our 32nd through 36th picks all made the majors — and they’re the only players we drafted that year who did!   Of course, 4 of those 5 didn’t sign with the O’s that summer and were drafted again later, in much higher rounds.     The only one we actually signed was Kirk Birkins, who we drafted as an outfielder in the 33rd round and was later converted to a pitcher, where he had a brief career as a roughly replacement level pitcher (-0.4 rWAR in 75.1 innings spread over three seasons).   
    • When I was 10 the worst problem I had in the world was that my bedtime was 8:30 or 9:00, which meant I went to bed in the 5th or 6th or 7th inning all the time, and had to sneak a transistor radio under my pillow to make it to the 9th.  Today 8:30 is sometimes the bottom of the 3rd. Now that I'm 48 it's an annoying problem that my kids can't stay up for the 5th inning, and I'm often asleep before the game is over.  They don't own transistor radios, and they probably couldn't pick up the O's game anyway.
    • Not trying to be smart, but I thought Cal had sold off his share of the Aberbeen, along with another of his minor league holders. Nobody said why, but, shortly later, his divorce became public, and people assume he was putting together her part of the holdings.
    • I'm don't think I'm making any large leaps assuming that Aberdeen is hands-off because of Cal Ripken.
    • Why should Delmarva get sacrificed?  After all, they were the Minor League Team of the Year and has a modern stadium in Salisbury.  Screw convenience... it's nice to have professional baseball come through the Eastern Shore since 1996 and I don't see why that should be tampered with.  An increase in affiliation could lead to the team putting more seats down the left and right side of the diamond to encourage more revenue to accommodate their increased affiliation.
    • At this point, this is throwing good money after bad.  Any appeal is almost certain to be doomed.  What error has the court committed to warrant review?  Angelos just lived through one of his biggest fears.  The Nats winning a World Series.
