Agreeable Tim!!!

The Giants management appears to have done something correctly! No really...I'm not shitting you. In fact, if it works out to be true, the successful wooing of Tim Lincecum into a LONG-TERM relationship with the franchise would be their greatest "move" of our fandom.

He said "Yes." Can you believe it? Ohmygodohmygodohmygod! He even said the " It's where I see myself being for awhile." Be still my beating heart. "I definitely like San Francisco." That sounds like a declaration of love to me! It should be the new city motto!

Tim's wonderful proclamation could not have come at a stranger, or better, time. The Freak "earned" his seventh loss with a quality start of seven innings, 6 hits (one double), 2 earned runs, 3 walks and seven strikeouts. That fine job was not nearly good enough. Yet another example of the offensive nature of our offense. I mean come on! Tim got one of the two hits we got all night! How did he and Matt ever get so many wins with this load o' shit lineup in the first place? It is a real good thing that I am not Tim's agent...I'm not sure what I would advice him...

Which gets me back to my original point: Congratulations to to the frequently and deservedly maligned Giants front office. It looks like Tim wants to be a Giant for a long time. This is the best thing to happen in a rather great year. Whatever you have done or haven't done, it is all forgiven...if it is true.

Great news, no doubt.

Get it done.

The story says that Lincecum would be open to a long term deal, not that he has signed one. Let's hold off on the congratulatory missives to management until they get it done. Remember back when I said that Zito set the bar for Lincecum and Cain and now, how much will we have to pay him? Let's just make sure it is enough to get a signature.
