Lincecum arbitration numbers
The arbitration numbers for San Francisco Giants pitcher
Tim Lincecum were revealed on Tuesday as Baseball's arbitration season nears. Lincecum is asking for $21.5 million, while the Giants are countering with $17 million. The highest figure ever asked for by a player was $22 million by Roger Clemens back in 2005, while the Giants' offer of $17 million is the most ever offered by a team. Look for the two sides to reach an agreement before the matter goes to a hearing. In 2010 Lincecum was scheduled for arbitration before the two sides reached an agreement on a two-year deal.
