Tim LincecumBy Matt Snyder

Tim Lincecum faces a lawsuit that alleges he has destroyed $200,000 worth of property in a furnished San Francisco apartment. The Giants ace is alleged to have illegally lived in the apartment after his lease was up, during which time he "broke, stained, defaced, tore, injured or destroyed" property inside the apartment. Landlord Mindy Freile is seeking $350,000 in damages from Lincecum. His lease expired Feb. 28, but Lincecum reportedly stayed until May 13, when Freile -- who had reportedly been trying to force Lincecum out -- entered the unit and noticed the damage.

"My belief is there was some kind of party that left it in really bad condition," said Freile's attorney Jonathan Bonstein (Mercurynews.com). "Maybe there's a perfectly good explanation on his side, but we haven't heard it yet."

Freile's complaint says that the following items were significantly damaged: "Bedding, doors, carpet, pillows, kitchenware, linens, furniture, household appliances, art work, decorations, patio furniture, lights, lamps, and mirrors, among other things."

The Giants haven't commented on the matter, but Lincecum's attorney has said it's an "unwarranted lawsuit" that he refuses to "dignify with a response."

The two-time Cy Young Award winner has been cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana in the past, but otherwise has a clean off-field record.

How did this get to be an issue about race? You are waaay too sensative! He may or may not have trashed an apartment. So what!! get a grip on life. Not everything is an issue of race.
I love when idiots read a few comments and judge that to be the entire conversation. Go do some homework there Junior and you will see why people are talking about race.

Breaking news: who cares?  So he beat up the furniture...not like he was pretending to be an SEC football player beating up people in a bar.

How do you damage silverware? sounds like a young rich bachelor did the damage of a normal man in his 20's and is being sued because of who he is. I bet this lady needs money bad. $350,000 for to fix up a condo? Sounds fishy. I don't think Timmy cares about this at all and neither should we.

Fortunately, us fuddy duddy Republicans won't have to put up with your God-awful party in the White House much longer after Hussein gets canned following this term.
Dude lighten up and stop being a hate Monger. You sound like Hank Williams Jr.

Everyone needs to relax. We may not view him exactly the way we would if he were black, but we don't necessarily think higher of him because of this. I mean gosh, Timmy was acting stupid. He trashed an apartment, and that's stupid, whether he had Cuban gamblers snorting lines of coke off strippers' butts in there or he just forgot to clean up his place in a stoned haze. This really shouldn't be either a political or social. This is just someone being stupid whose live won't be ravaged by this because he's rich. At the end of the day, everyone on this board just needs to be more like Timmy. Kick back and smoke one...

why buy when the market is still dropping and you only live their 6 months a year. He owns a luxury condo in his hometown Seattle.  Now all he lost is his security deposit. Smart!  He probably just forgot to clean up before he moved out...

If you made millions of dollars, shouldn't you buy a house?! Particularly in this market?
