Clarification needed Re: Lincecum1. If Lincecum's deal is for 2 years, how do we have him for the next 4 years? I don't understand. 2. Why would both sides fly all the way to Tampa and then not have a hearing. Wouldn't the fact that you were flying all the way across the country for a hearing be an incentive to either get the deal done before leaving or actually have the hearing?
