Tim Lincecum’s New Deal is Leap of Faith by San Francisco Giants
If there was any doubt left about the San Francisco Giants‘ confidence in Tim Lincecum, it’s now long gone. On Tuesday night, the orange and black signed the freak pitcher to a new two-year, $35 million contract, which will keep him in San Francisco through the 2015 MLB season.
Lincecum has consistently started over 30 games each season since winning his first NL Cy Young Award in 2008, but he hasn’t been as steady on the mound in the past two seasons aside from his first career no-hitter on July 13 of this year. Of course, one could argue that his willingness to move to the bullpen during the Giants’ second title run in 2012 is even more valuable than quality starts, but that’s a toss-up.
Either way, Lincecum is back with the Giants, who didn’t make the playoffs this year after shocking everyone in last year’s postseason. Considering the team has already locked up All-Star right fielder Hunter Pence as well, it’s safe to say San Fran is gearing up for another surprise World Series run in 2014.
