Giants signed RHP Tim Lincecum to a two-year, $23 million extension.

The deal will cover Lincecum's first two years of arbitration-eligibility and contains over $1 million in performance-based incentives. A two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, the 25-year-old Lincecum is 40-17 with a 2.90 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over his first 90 major league starts. He will serve as the Giants' rotation ace for at least the next two years.

Meh... maybe he'll lose another 2 miles per hour off his fastball like last year and implode. We can always hope as Dbacks fans. Not that I wish anyone any harm, of course. Twisted Evil

Wow that is a lot of money for a guy with only two years of service time. Then again, I doubt anyone else has ever won the CYA in his first two full seasons. I wonder what he would have received in arbitration.

This guy will set a record when he is a free agent.

Damn, the Giants wanted to give him 3/$37!

Andrew Baggarly / San Jose Mercury News wrote:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Tim Lincecum has a 9.82 ERA after two spring-training starts, and a suspect defense played poorly behind him again Thursday.

But the Giants might have a bigger problem on their hands.

Madison Bumgarner, their 20-year-old left-hander, looked nowhere near ready for the major leagues. He didn't crack 90 mph while walking four of the 11 batters he faced in a 6-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners.

Bumgarner remains the top choice among Giants officials to open the season as the No. 5 starter, but non-roster right-hander Todd Wellemeyer would be well-served to toss a strong outing today against the Colorado Rockies in Tucson.

"I'll say this: We're staying open-minded," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

Bumgarner was clocked at 94 mph last spring, when he struck out the Dodgers' Manny Ramirez. But his velocity dropped into the high 80s by June, and he hasn't recaptured the crackle on his fastball this spring.

He threw a couple of 85 mph fastballs in his final inning.

Ruh roh... sounds like Bumgarner may have a physical issue going on.

Can I claim to be the first to (kind of, sort of) notice Bumgarner's velocity drop?

Lower velocity at the end of a season for a very young pitcher is not troubling in and of itself. He threw about 140 innings each of the last 2 years, his 18 & 19 age years and he apparently threw a lot between starts as well, so that's probably not good. Lower velocity at the beginning of ST is not really troubling either, unless you're talking a 10% drop. He may be holding back a bit for all we know. I'd wait and see where he is at after 3-4 regular season appearances.

Giants team OPS+ 99 coming into today and 9th in runs scored. With their pitching, if they maintain that OPS+, they will not be beat this year in our division.

But...it's all batting avg. They are 15th in walks and 10th in HR. So I am guessing their offense will slow down and that BA drops, and with it the OBP and SLG, because they are unlikely to increase their walk and HR rates very much.

So Giants will cool off and come back to back, is my prediction

Ya but Giants: Starters went 13 consecutive games without allowing more than two earned runs. Shocked

Here's the problem for the Dbacks:

The Padres pitching is equally good to the Giants pitching
And the Padres have some guys who can actually hit

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/team_audit.php?team=ari

AdGone, Blanks, Hairston, Venable - those guys will hit better
And both SD and SF are excellent defensively, look at DER
And the Rockies may be the most balanced team in the division

Dbacks and Dodgers are images of each other right now:
Good offense, awful pitching, really crappy defense
The low DER can be blamed on pitching as much as on fielding
I.e., crappy pitchers = lasers to all corners = low DER

Giants sign Burrell
Quote:
Pat Burrell has officially signed a minor-league deal with the San Francisco Giants, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Hank Schulman.

Our View
He will join Triple-A Fresno this weekend. Considering how poor San Francisco's offense has been this season, it seems highly likely that Burrell will soon get a major league shot with the club.

Schierholtz likely to lose playing time with Posey now up
Quote:
According to the San Jose Mercury-News, "it's likely that Nate Schierholtz will be the guy who cedes the most at-bats to Buster Posey."

Our View
The paper expects Aubrey Huff to man left field when the Giants play Posey at first. With the club loath to take Andres Torres out of the lineup and leadoff spot, he will then spell Schierholtz in right.


To add:
Quote:
Waldis Joaquin has been returned to Triple-A Fresno, the move paves the way for heralded prospect Buster Posey.
