Lincecum Off the Hook? This Video Helped.

The 2008 Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will pay $250 for possessing a pot pipe an AP report said today. The agreement must still be approved by Judge Darvin Zimmerman.

Grant Hansen, the deputy prosecutor on the Lincecum case, said his office is willing to dismiss a misdemeanor charge of possessing 3.3 grams of marijuana.

“We negotiated the case in the manner we do with just about every first-time marijuana-drug paraphernalia case where the individual is cooperative with the officer,” Hansen told The Columbian. “We dismissed possession of marijuana and amended the other charge to buying or selling drug paraphernalia, a Class A civil infraction.”

Lincecum was picked up just after sunrise on Oct 30 and a week later it looks like the case is quickly wrapping up.

There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that Mr. Hansen was heard singing this catchy jingle from the Fox TV hit show Family Guy.

    As a giants fan, well, at least there’s some giants-related news on a pirates blog, too bad it’s not such a good kind.

    On another topic: I vaguely remember hearing something about an end of season sweepstakes. Interested in hearing more if its still going on.

      Sorry about your luck with being a Giants fan. That really sucks. Speaking of sucks, how is Freddy Sanchez doing ? The sweepstakes was won by Third Boss. He doesn’t suck. There will be more

    Sanchez was re-signed for two years, but I’m not that confident in his health. Even when he plays, he’s not really the answer to the giants offense, due to his lack of power and obp. Still, a near average hitter is nothing to sneeze at on this year’s giants.

      Gezzuntight! Now that’s funny, you nailed it right on the head. Sanchez has hot streaks that make him look like a world beater, but he will only excel in a lineup of highly talented players that have high ops in front of him. The Aki deal looks better every day for the Pirates.

    Now, I’m no expert regarding pirates prospects, but my understanding is that the guys they gave up for iwamura were far from Alderson quality. Even if iwamura is a small step down from sanchez, I would have preferred the giants tried for him, or maybe deal alderson and barnes and someone else for a true impact bat.

      That’s a very good way to view the moves. Do you know if Sanchez is participating in anything with the Giants this off season? Conditioning camp, etc

  • aroundthehorn

    Not sure. All I know is, according to andrew baggarly of the sj mercury, sanchez is “expected to be 100 percent for spring training.” We’ll see.

      If I had to make a bet, I say Sanchez will be. He exhibited a strong work ethic as a Pirate. His on the field performance was always professional. We wish him the best in San Fran. What’s the rest of the offseason look like for the Giants?
