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.

Pal, you're the one injecting race into this stupid discussion.  Lincecum looks like a skateboarding girl.  Hardly someone I'd characterize as a thug. 
 An ignorant kid who's income allows him to act irresponsibly on a large level.  Maybe a pot smoking stoner with loser friends. 
But the realtor suing is looking for some publicity, it's VERY hard to believe that the level of damage is a quarter mil unless he's ripping pipes out of walls and doing structural damage. Much ado about nothing.   

So here we go again. Because the man is white, and has a certain look to him..he is not a thug, but a black man of the same proportions is a thug.... you sir are nothng more than a racist, and quite honestly an idiot....and no I did not inject race into this conversation, the idiot members of CBS Sports have done that for me on each and every story involving anyone of a different race. 

That's hilarious to me, if a guy is white...he is a stoner with loser friends, if a guy is a black he is an AK 47 wielding maniac you should hide your children from..... you people are sad, and I would hate to live in your shoes, be your friend, have you as a father..a relative..you get the point. Ignorance breeds ignorance and if by chance you have kids you probably raise them to be the same way.

The Menendez brothers kinds of looked like "skateboarding girls" as well, they murdered there parents..you jackass.

I think the real moral of the story is this: If Matt Cain would roll one more often--if he could see his way to becoming a Puff the Magic Dragon as well--he, too, might win a couple Cy Young awards.

Leave Timmy alone and Let Him Smoke.  Who let all of you fuddy-duddy Republicans on this site?  Don't you idiots know how to party?  Do you think for a minute that the landlord won't get her cash?  Go back to ruining the economy and sucking up to Sarah Palin.

Why can't the realtor sue for damages? What do you mean by a publicity stunt? She hoping to rent out more condos or apartments by this? Lincecum is like Bob Gibson on the field and like Jeff Spicoli off the field. He is luck he has talent, because he would be a total drughead if he didn't. he doesn't ahve clue about life or respect for anybody. He is cocky, arrogant and a pot head. he should be playing in the NBA.
