This is one guy that the Giants don't need to let walk...

the giants shouldn't let him walk away, but the giants need to pay him his 22 millions per year= two years=44 millions two years?? can the giants afford lincecum demands????

Timmy's earned it. I'll echo those saying "pay the man" and add "and go find some bats to protect him."

the good thing about lincecum he doesn't like long terms, just be well paid each year that's all!!

the giants are just lucky, lincecum don't like too many years or a long term contract, can you imagine 4 years/88 millions deal???
