The Giants, Matt Cain have “a very healthy dialogue going” on an extension

Matt Cain

Matt Cain‘s future in San Francisco is ensured through 2012 by virtue of the three-year contract he signed before the 2010 season. But the Giants would like to have him around longer, obviously.  Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News spoke with Giants VP Bobby Evans, and he sounds pretty optimistic about all of that:

Evans confirmed that the club has spoken with Cain’s representatives in recent days. He described the talks as “very healthy dialogue and it’s ongoing.”

“I’m an optimist by nature so you can pretty well gather we’ll do everything we can with all parties to come to agreeable terms,” Evans said. “They’ve been very responsive.”

At the moment I can’t help but think that this is more relevant news for Yankees fans than anyone.  Coveting Matt Cain is one of the more popular things they do when actual baseball games aren’t being played.

      A bit late on that one unless you are wishing for the 2013 season.

    If the Yankees can get Cain to extend (or if he extends with the Giants and then the trade occurs…), we’ll send Swisher and Nunez (and their bats) plus one pitcher of lesser potential for him… Deal?
