1.18: Larry Baer Talks Arbitration with Jaymee Sire
Tim Lincecum wears out our trees -- on Friday what he -- -- the good -- arbitration season. I'm you know he'd file we file. It's a process it's a process that you know pretty much every player of his -- it's good problem to have in the sense that you know great players. You know -- arbitration awards that are going to be big increases and it will feel -- -- the good news is Tim Lincecum. -- guaranteed to be a giant -- an ex Warriors. Arbitration like you'll get confused arbitration means that you. Haggle over amateur to pay him but he's property of the Giants -- Part of the Giants as are the other arbitration people Brian Wilson Jonathan Sanchez passed. You know of how much you're going to pay and how do you guys feel about the fact that. A lot of people projecting he's gonna break at ten million dollar mark set -- Ryan -- You can't worry about that too much immediate you know we we work on what -- case should be there's very specific rules. And so you know you go back and forth with the numbers and and it ends up where it ends up we're more focused on is gonna play where -- more focused on making the team I'd say that. You know while we're putting effort into arbitration according more effort into that team and -- team that can -- it and it's a playoffs in the World Series. How likely is it that you get a deal done I'm content -- you have to are very -- of all the cases 5% of the hearing now. This is going to be high profile case. Can't be afraid get a hearing so it's possible we go to a hearing that you go to Garrett is a giant. And he remains a -- so I think from the fan's standpoint. That's a big worry about where does something else. Speaking of the 2010 Giants what should fans about it and look at what we've improved and if you look at second base we have Freddy Sanchez for the whole season. Aubrey Huff has a record of being good strong power hitter to be number four hitter. Another year Pablo. You know second lonely -- getting in his first full season. And and the pitching staff of course that Timmy and Barry Zito -- job that Sanchez of course -- so. I think our pitching staff stacks up with anybody else's that would improve the offense which Bryant -- is working hard to do. We think this could be you know I think that we can improve upon navy wins if you could -- an 88 wins. -- -- -- Focus right now on timlin and Jonathan Sanchez and wrangles and getting -- arbitration deals done -- as spring training comes up any other moves on the right. Could be in -- -- it would interest exist a lot of other players out there Jamie. So he's save yourself let's see some of the players there and it. In a he'll get to an economic classic get to it desirability both ways that point and does does wind them. -- to speculate deal. That's happened in the past and that's -- assigns a late deal I've never been a synagogue was -- -- sign during spring training all of a sudden the innocent -- on the scene. You know early in spring training so. It's possible. Don't want to -- promises could happen as possible somebody else that could. Come as a surprise -- continued -- happy we're looking at him.
