Giants wise to reach deal with Lincecum

The San Francisco Giants wisely avoided fighting a losing arbitration battle with ace Tim Lincecum, settling on a two-year deal reportedly worth about $23 million. My only question: why did it take so long?

The team was thisclose to going to battle with the best young pitcher in baseball, a fight they would have lost to the tune of $13 million. But by dragging things out, they risked alienating their superstar, a two-time Cy Young winner they should be building a team around. I hope for the Giants sake that's not the case.
