Giants-Lincecum negotiations not going well

Posted on: February 11, 2010 2:20 pm

The Giants and Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum are likely headed to an arbitration hearing in Florida on Friday.

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports a source said the Giants have made a three-year, $37 million offer and that Lincecum is asking for $40 million-plus.

If the two sides don't agree, the arbitrator will decide between the $13 million Lincecum submitted or the $8 million the Giants submitted.

The right-hander posted a 15-7 mark with a 2.48 ERA last season as he claimed his second consecutive Cy Young Award.
