    Wow, 2 years $35 million. Here's what SI had to say about his new contract:

    "Over the last two seasons, Lincecum has posted a 4.76 ERA, which translates to a 72 ERA+ that is tied for the worst among major-league pitchers with 300 or more innings over those two seasons. The men he is tied with are Edinson Volquez, who was released by the Padres in August, and, in what should have been a giant red flag for Sabean, Barry Zito."

    Nick, tell me again why this guy made your short list of FAs?

    I'm going to guess this article comes pretty close to what Nick's answer would be: Tim Lincecum and the Slow Death of ERA.
