Lincecum can use some of that arbitration money to pay pot fines

Jan 20, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

On the same day that he filed an arbitration request of $13 million, Tim Lincecum was ordered to pay $513 in fines to resolve October marijuana charges.
Lincecum was originally charged with two misdemeanor counts of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession following an October 30 traffic stop in Washington, but the incident has been reduced to “civil infraction” status after the back-to-back Cy Young winner appeared in front of a district court judge yesterday.
Between the $513 in fines and previous money he shelled out for the speeding ticket maybe Lincecum will be motivated to settle between his $13 million request and the Giants’ $8 million figure. OK, probably not.

    To pay the fines??? Heh heh, no, I think not. Aaron, when were you born? My guess is that unlike comrade Tim here, you are not a Sixties kid.

    I’d like to see the Giants do something stupid and piss the kid off, their offer of $8 million is a touch light to say the least. The kid can come to the Bronx if he wants but he will have to get a haircut!

    Tim’s from Seattle he knows better than to go to NYC. He’ll get a big paycheck whereever he signs, no need to sell out too.

    I tried to make an argument like yours once, but I didn’t get a very positive response. I hope your writing on this topic turns out a lot better than mine did. Keep up the sterling work.
