The Giants and Brandon Belt probably aren't a long-term fit

The Giants enjoy locking their homegrown players up to long-term deals, but the looming arbitration case reminds us that Brandon Belt might not get that kind of extension.

Thurman said almost all the 30 teams have contacted him about Lincecum and at least 20 have requested medical information, adding he wouldn’t permit his client to throw in a showcase until he’s 100 percent.

Giants, Belt far off in contract numbers

Belt on Friday formally filed a request for a $7.5 million salary, more than doubling the $3.6 million he earned last year, according to arbitration maven Jon Heyman. A panel of three arbiters would hear arguments from both sides and pick one salary or the other. The Giants have not gone through an entire arbitration hearing since 2004, when new catcher A.J.
