Tim Lincecum

Timmy “The Freak” has been linked to the Mariners for years now. Many have speculated and hoped that the Washington-born Lincecum would like to return home (he pitched for the University of Washington in Seattle) to pitch for the M’s.

The Giants will more than likely offer Lincecum a qualifying offer of around $14 million for 2014. According to some reports, Lincecum will test free agency before simply signing a one-year qualifying deal.

The Angels and Dodgers are both thought to be in the running with the Rockies as an outside shot.

If the price tag gets north of $18 million/year, the Mariners should pass. But if they can come to terms on a 3-4 year deal at $15-$16 million/year, then I think “The Freak” will join “The King”
