But the Giants rotation, such a strength back in their 2012 World Series campaign, could ill-afford to lose their one-time ace to free agency after the 2013 season.
It appears as if Lincecum and the Giants were not interested in taking a long-term gamble that would result in an expensive contract fiasco—take San Francisco’s seven-year, $126 million contract with Barry Zito for example.
It is worth pointing out that Lincecum will make less money than he did during 2012-13. Also, the Giants will look to replace the starting job once held by Zito.
