The whole world of baseball is a bit on edge, waiting for Tuesday. While most fans wait on pitchers and catchers, people inside baseball (and the kind of obsessives here at BP) are waiting to see “the number.” What will Tim Lincecum and his representatives ask for in arbitration? Speculation has been rampant, ranging from $8m to $22m.
So why not have fun with it? I declare the Lincecum Lottery open. In comments, guess the correct dollar figure* and we’ll give you a BP gift subscription to give to the person of your choosing. Good luck and get to guessing! If you’d like, add in how you came to the number.
* The tiebreaker will be whoever submitted the correct number first. Please submit only one number per username.
