    Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt came into last night’s game with ridiculous career numbers against Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum … and then Goldschmidt smacked a three-run homer off the two-time Cy Young winner in an Arizona victory.

    The Giants were given quite a scare last night when right-hander Tim Lincecum was hit in the inside of his left knee by a line drive off the bat of Athletics first baseman Daric Barton in the fourth inning and had to be helped off the field. However, it appears that things could have been…

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

    Greg Reynolds, who was the second overall pick in a stacked 2006 draft, has signed with the Seibu Lions in Japan after posting a 7.01 ERA in the majors.

    Well, sorta anyway. In their version, they ended up on the same team in exchange for Tim Lincecum. But I’m going to put this in the “spooky” category all the same: (thanks to MLB Fan Cave for the heads up)

    Ubaldo Jimenez AP

    Ubaldo Jimenez is no dummy. After seeing Tim Lincecum get $35 million, Jimenez said thanks but no thanks to the Indians after they exercised their half of the $8 million option for 2014, thereby becoming a free agent.

  20. Let us not freak out about free agent salaries, OK?

    Oct 23, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    I feel like people freak out a little bit every fall and winter when the first couple of free agents sign. The dollars get announced and the reaction is some form of “wow, what an overpay!” and “if [Player X] gets that, [Player Y] is going to get insane dollars!” We’ve seen a little bit…
