08:13 AM ET 03.25 | The Tim Lincecum Problem, unfortunately for the Giants, is now threatening to hang over 2013. What the Giants fear is the worst-case scenario: that he gets knocked around similarly to last year when the season starts and they are forced to consider removing him from the rotation. Lincecum was blasted in his most recent Cactus League outing on Saturday. In four spring starts, his ERA needs an anti-inflammatory: It's 10.97. ... Best thing about Lincecum's most recent outing is that he went 80 pitches. Worst thing is that he was still in the fourth inning when he was removed. "It's more of a concern for us to get his strength up," Bochy said. Check back a couple of weeks into the season.

I bet he's kicking himself for not taking that $100M extension offer.

LINCECUM has proved all to the giants,, just put me in the bullpen as a long reliever, and things will fall in place at the right place at the right time!!!!

No doubt.

And Sabean is having one of those, "whew, that was close" moments himself over and over again.

New season, same issue with Timmy. If anything, his market value has dropped and maybe he sticks around for a much more club friendly deal. I'm obviously assuming he ends up having a decent year when all is said and done.
