Lawsuit alleges that Tim Lincecum trashed his San Francisco apartment

How very rock and roll: Tim Lincecum is being sued by his San Francisco landlord, who claims that Lincecum “broke, stained, defaced, tore, injured or destroyed” some $200,000 worth of furniture, fixtures and appliances in his Mission District apartment.

According to the Mercury News, landlord Mindy Freile’s complains that all manner of items were damaged or stolen, including “bedding, doors, carpet, pillows, kitchenware, linens, furniture, household appliances, art work, decorations, patio furniture, lights, lamps, and mirrors, among other things.”  Freile’s attorney said “My belief is there was some kind of party that left it in really bad condition. Maybe there’s a perfectly good explanation on his side, but we haven’t heard it yet.”

The suit, which seeks $350,000 in total damages, also says that Lincecum basically squatted in the place after his lease expired on February 28th, and that he didn’t leave until May 13th.  Which is interesting, because Lincecum would have been in Scottsdale at spring training for half that time.  Which suggests that he got most of the trashing out of the way in the second half of that period or else he had a couple of friends, you know, watching the place.

For his part, Lincecum’s agent says that the suit is totally baseless and that he won’t dignify it with a response. His lawyer probably should, though.

For my part I would be shocked — shocked! — to learn that Lincecum parties hard in his apartment.

Oh, wait

    Sounds like some sort of drunken, pot orgy took place. Timmay, I’m disappointed.

      Pot orgy? That might be the funniest pairing of words I’ve ever seen.

        And yet somehow…tempting

      • halladaysbiceps - Oct 6, 2011 at 5:58 PM

        Ah, yes. The pot orgy. It is a lost phrase. I believe it was coined by Jim Morrison.

        Lincecum is baseball’s version of Jim Morrison. It’s an appropriate comparison.

        Eh-hem . . . as long as Bill Lee is alive he will remain baseball’s Jim Morrison. Although Timmay may continue to serve as understudy.

    there is a “perfectly good explanation” — doesn’t she have the stats on his run support? Any man could be excused a little furniture-bashing with that offense behind him…

    I like how he rents is a crappy area

    • msgiants2010 - Oct 6, 2011 at 7:55 PM

      Ha- it is crappy but quite popular among people who look…a lot like Lincecum, actually. With ironic mustaches though, of course.

        We can look for him at Zeitgeist next year.

    interesting sidenote, the apartment sits on what was once the third base side of seals stadium, the giants’ first home in sf

    • clydeserra - Oct 6, 2011 at 6:49 PM

      Its very close, but more behind the stadium.

    Jim Morrison must’ve coined that term while high on heroin.

    I heard Jordan Schafer was in attendance…

    Lincecum? or LinceCLONE? That is the question.
