Baggs update on Lincecum's arb case

53

I didn't see a link to this but if this is already being discussed elsewhere, let me know and I'll delete this FanShot. The agent for right-hander Tim Lincecum said the Giants have not engaged in significant contract negotiations and he is convinced the two-time Cy Young award winner’s arbitration case will reach the hearing stage. Rick Thurman said the Giants have not discussed a one-year deal and talks have been limited to "some very insignificant two-year conversations," which leads him to believe that "it’s quite clear the case is headed to a hearing."The agent said he was surprised at the minimal level of conversation from the Giants, adding, "I think that’s the direction (a hearing) they’ve wanted this go from Day One simply because there’s been little or no discussions with regards to a contract." Giants vice president Bobby Evans, who is handling all direct negotiations, disagreed with the agent’s contention that the club sought out a hearing from the beginning. "I respectfully disagree and I’ll leave it at that," Evans said.
