Giants miss playoffs after winning World Series

SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey glanced toward Tim Lincecum's locker and pondered what the Giants' clubhouse might look like without The Freak or fellow starter Barry Zito, and only because the catcher got asked about it last week.

"Honestly, I guess I haven't really put much thought into that," Posey said.

He might not have to for long, either.

Giants general manager Brian Sabean plans to do all he can — and soon — to keep Lincecum around. The club already took care of its first order of business: Signing right fielder Hunter Pence to a $90 million, five-year contract. He played every game this season.

Two others with multiyear contracts struggled to stay on the field this season.
