Tim Lincecum Will Be The Richest Stoner in San Francisco

Guys, the weed's on me tonight

Tim Lincecum of the Giants filed an arbitration claim for $13,000,000 yesterday.  The Giants countered with $8,000,000.  He is due for a big pay day, and there’s little to suggest that he isn’t worth that much.

But this is really bad news for players in general, as it marks a further decline in baseball’s willingness to employ a mediocre player just because he’s been around for ten years.  I elaborate on this over on All Swings Considered.
