    That's apples and oranges. A 29 year old pitcher versus a 37 year old pitcher.

    True, but the 37-year old has been the better pitcher over the last two years.

    Anyway, I really meant that the Lincecum deal can be viewed as an indication of the starters' market as a whole. I don't expect teams to actually be using Lincecum's deal as a starting point for offering a contract to Bronson.

    Giants were one of the rumored pursuers of Arroyo... Because Lincecum was leaving due to FA. Not likely now.

    I'm not sure how many suit left will be willing to pay more than a QO and giving up an early round draft pick.

    If the Reds make a QO, I'm guessing Bronson will accept.

    Lincecum is part of their brand identity campaign. It's marketing expense as much as anything.
