Per Schulman's twitter, "Cain reiterated Opening Day is "cutoff" for contact talks. Said Sabean feels the same way."
It's really sad it has taken this long. All offseason Sabean and Baer said the top priority of the offseason was to lock up the pitching. This was their excuse as to why we didn't go out and get good offensive players, settling on Melky Cabrera, Angel Pagan and Ryan Theriot. They locked up Lincecum but none of his free agent years then foolishly extended the 34 year old Vogelsong. This isn't exactly fulfilling their goal as it was explained to us fans. Giants have a week to get a deal done.
