Tim Lincecum’s landlord is still suing him

This is a blast from the past. Two years ago we posted about Tim Lincecum’s landlord suing him, claiming he did over $200,000 damage to his Mission District apartment between May 2010 and February 2011. It also said that he squatted in the place for three months after the lease was up, refusing to leave.  At the time the landlord’s lawyer 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.”

I can’t imagine Tim Lincecum partying, can you? That thing on the table must be some weird kind of glass candle or some such:

Anyway, the suit is apparently still winding through court, with Linceucm fighting to have the suit heard in arbitration but the landlord wanting a proper trial.  The landlord, the San Francisco Chronicle reports, has won that battle.

Dude: you make over $20 million a year. Consider settling this thing. You don’t want your dirty laundry and/or bong water aired in court, do you?

I’m off to Scottsdale to Giants camp this morning. Perhaps he’ll take my advice on that if he feels like talking.

    Ric Ocasek should consider suing Timmy as well for stealing his look.

      His hair is different in the two pictures. Does this mean he started flat-ironing his hair?

    Nuff said

    Timmy’s just too tempted by the dime bags of life.

    “I’m off to Scottsdale to Giants camp this morning. Perhaps he’ll take my advice on that if he feels like talking.”

    Yes, perhaps over a nice peace pipe, anything is possible…. and

    “Get some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s’mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap’n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on ‘em, with water, whole lotta water, and Funyons.”

      Scarface: Don’t worry, man. All we gotta do to get you out is to get ten percent of ten million dollars. Which by our calculations is…
      Brian: …Fucking impossible, man!

    Anyone else notice he has a joint in one hand and a lighter in the other.

    Don’t they drug test in MLB? How does he get away with being such a stoner?

      Not for weed. Besides who cares

      • jm91rs - Mar 12, 2013 at 10:51 AM

        I knew they tested for it in the NFL, just assumed they did in MLB.

        I do not care, but i dont care if he’s shooting heroin before he pitches if he does his job. He’s a baseball player to me, nothing else.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    They don’t test for THC at the Major League level. And also you do realize that’s not Tim Lincecum in the video right? That is Tim Lincecums twin.

    • jm91rs - Mar 12, 2013 at 10:52 AM

      1) I do realize he’s not in the video
      2) he does not have a twin
      3) don’t try to tell me tim lincecum is not actually a stoner. I don’t buy it.

    Its not like he can’t afford to pay it. With what he made between his MLB salary and residuals from being in Dazed and Confused he should be able to handle it

    Hillarious video. As if the bong on the coffee table wasn’t enough…dude has a roach in his right hand.

  10. stlouis1baseball - Feb 28, 2013 at 2:16 PM

    “Hilarious.”

    EDIT FUNCTION!

    The dude in the video is a cab driver in SF who is from Brazil…and he just happens to look like Timmy’s twin. They did all sorts of stories about him in the Bay Area after the Giants won the World Series in 2010.

    Why doesn’t he have a real house he is rich ??

    Oh, Timmy. That’s what you get for pissing off Mr. Roper…

    If he didn’t so it, why pay??? I figure it was ransacked while it was empty like the houses around here…

  15. mogogo1 - Mar 1, 2013 at 1:24 PM

    Maybe he should settle just to make it all go away…but that is assuming he really gives a darn. I’m having a hard time imagining how $200,000 worth of damage could be done to an apartment, so my guess is there was quite a bit of padding done to the damages estimate for this lawsuit.
