    Re: What do you think Tim Lincecum is worth?

    I do agree with Saber that this HAS to be an effort to set a mid-point. But still, do you risk lowballing a talent like Lincecum to save a couple of million while potentially pissing him off seriously? Especially with an offer coming in below $10 million. He not only has the stats but the hardware to back up his achievements.

    In todays market the sky is the limit. It is not what he is worth today that scares me it is what he will be worth in 10 years if he keeps this up.

    If he keeps this up for 10 years, I think it's likely he'll just ascend straight to heaven.

    Apparently, from this updated photo of himself, he's threatening to hold out for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    23 divided by 2 = 11.5, not 12.5

    Math for the win!

    Lincecum will receive $9 million this year and $14 million in 2011.
    Way to roll over like a pussy. Whatever happened to being the Freak for possessing risk-free mechanics?

    You have to first take into consideration that I am cheap, but I would still give Lincecum at least 12 million. He is one of the top pitchers in MLB.

    Wow. Tim Lincecum is making less money than Oliver Perez. Hey, Brian Sabean, wanna trade?

    Re: What do you think Tim Lincecum is worth?

    He spent most of 2010 on the Mets roster...he only pitched like 40 innings, but that's like 40935834957395374832789472 too many for me. It hurts to see him pitch. He pitched the 14th (and final) inning of the Mets' last game this season, and proceeded to walk 3 and hit a batter to lose the game.

    Minaya should have been fired directly after offering that horrendous contract to Perez.
