11. You're right..though technically he took a pay cut..

and this is a marketing decision, it's not just based on Lincecum's on field performance. The money only matters if the Giants are now unwilling or unable to go after other players to fill holes because of the large contracts given to Lincecum or even Pence.

The Giants aren't hurting for money, their principal owner is worth billions. The ownership group can spend as much as they're comfortable with.. Perhaps these contracts are an indication the Giants are going to do whatever it takes to keep up with the Dodgers..if that's the case, then I'm all for it.
