It's about damn time.

In the eleventh hour before their schedule hearing today, the Giants signed Tim Lincecum to a multi-year deal , though the terms haven't been disclosed just yet.

This settles the arbitration case where the two sides were $5 million apart.  Lincecum wanted $13 million, San Fran wanted to give him $8 million.

The most amazing thing about all of this is Lincecum made only $650,000 bucks last year.  That has to be the lowest salary for a Cy Young award winner since the first million dollar contract was signed by Nolan Ryan in 1979.

The rumor is Lincecum's new contract will be worth more than 10 times his old deal.  Now that's a nice raise.
