Wow.  Lincecum will probably move on after his contract.

Hard to believe that's the richest contract in history for a RHP.

They can't top that with Lincecum, can they?

. . .  and this is why we locked up JZ early.  Oh wait, we didn't.

at least we locked up Zimmerman before Votto (and you other team got lucky Gonzales was pre votto as well)

Seems Gonzalez was the low point for the 1B market.  Seems Crawford, right after Werth, might have been a high point in the corner OF market.  You wonder what the two teams would have been like had Werth signed for 6 years, $96MM with the Sox and Crawford for 7 years, $115MM here.   Nats Park is not a good triples park because the dimensions are too regular and the gaps are not huge, but Crawford's defense, which is based on make up speed, would have really gotten a great display here and he would have slotted into the top of the order he prefers.  While he did not have a better year than Desmond offensively, I think some of that was due to the park.

Even with last year being a disaster, I'd much rather have had Crawford than Werth.

Yep. They got two years with Lincecum. By then the lease will be up and Zito will be gone.

Looking more and more like Lincecum might be headed for the DL

Im not saying greinke is a better move I just think we will go after him next year.  Rizzo tried to get him once and I think he'll try again

I think locking up two guys that are better than Grienke would be a better investment. That's just me though, a JZimm fanboy.

right now it's probably cheaper than in October assuming he goes 15-7 with a 3.1 ERA.

I'm totally cool with Stras, JZ, Gio, and whomever going forward. Spend all that dough on an elite hitter to fit in with RZ and Harper.
