The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner’s file for neared the record amount sought in arbitration. Houston pitcher Roger Clemens asked for $22 million in 2005.

San Francisco’s propose was the greater in arbitration record, above the $14.25 million the NY Yankees suggested for shortstop Derek Jeter in 2001. Betting lines

“I’m full optimistic that we’ll find commonly shared perspective without a hearing room,” Bobby Evans, Giants vice president of baseball operations, asserted before seeing Lincecum’s filing numbers. “It’s an action that starts prolonged before today in terms of chats about potential deals that function for each side. That method has continued in a common fashion. About this point we haven’t reached a consideration.”

Also the Giants and slugger Pablo Sandoval concluded on a $17.15 million, three-year agreement. The 25-year-old third baseman became an All-Star last season after losing almost 40 pounds in a rigorous offseason regimen. He batted .315 with twenty-three home runs and seventy RBIs in 2011.

He was the winning pitcher in the Game 5 World Series clincher at Texas in 2010, earned $13.1 million last season when he finished a two year agreement worth $23.2 million.

Giant’s front office may like to lock up the 27-year-old Lincecum and teammate starter Matt Cain with long-term deals. Lincecum appears set on keeping his choices open in the near future on a shorter plan.

“We know we’ll at least have a 1 year offer,” Evans recounted. “I can’t truly envision where it’ll finish up. In this activity your two parties are constantly filing to try to come to a midpoint. The business deal is truly about the average.”

With Lincecum earning a big agreement, Evans joked, “I typically depart off the last 3 zeroes mainly because it’s better to figure out.”

If the past is any suggestion, the actors will do their greatest effort to achieve a deal before spring training and before an arbitration hearing.

Lincecum agreed to a $23 million in Feb 2010 and two-year contract ahead of the scheduled hearing. He had been set at that moment to ask for $13 million.

That last agreement was pretty an increase for the small, hard-throwing pitcher his teammates call “Franchise” and “Freak” after he worthy $650,000 in 2009.

“We’re taking a look at different player contracts that give us a conception where we think Tim should be,” Evans said.

“There is not ever a player that’s exactly like the one that you have. Eventually there’s only 1 guy that looks the same as him.”

Lincecum was the 10th overall draft pick out of Washington in 2006 has been an All-Star in every one of the past four seasons. He went 13-14 with a 2.74 ERA last year for his first losing record. The San Francisco Giants scored no runs as long as he was in the game in 7 of 33 starts, had one run 6 times and 2 runs five times.

The SF Giants met 1 year settlements to avoid arbitration with outfielders Melky Cabrera and Nate Schierholtz and reliever Santiago Casilla.

Cabrera concluded to a $6 million agreement.

San Francisco, which sold out each game in 2011 but missed the playoffs, will have a payroll of almost $130 million.

“Clearly the income which has been generated by our ownership and the help of our followers here makes the payroll level we have feasible,” Evans asserted. “We don’t consider that for awarded. We know that with that sort of payroll appears responsibility and expectancy.”
