Tim Lincecum, Two Years, $35 Million

Over the past two years, there have been 86 pitchers with 300 or more innings pitched. Tim Lincecum's 4.76 ERA ranks 83rd. His 1.389 WHIP ranks 76th.

There are 53 pitchers with 350 or more innings pitched. Lincecum's ERA ranks 52nd and his WHIP ranks 48th.

There are 41 pitchers with 375 or more innings pitched. His ERA ranks last and his WHIP ranks second-to-last.

I suppose he's durable.

I don't begrudge any ballplayer making a ton of dough. But let's not hear the Giants whine about having to keep their payroll low because of the limited Bay Area market and competition from the A's.
