Giants digging for second-half turnaround

SAN FRANCISCO — Tim Lincecum's no-hitter last weekend at San Diego provided a rare first-half highlight for the stumbling San Francisco Giants. And, perhaps, a glimpse into the Freak's immediate future in the Bay Area.

General manager Brian Sabean said on his regular radio show Thursday that the Giants don't plan to trade the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner this season.

"That's definitely good. I've always had a great time here in SF and I just hope to see that go further," Lincecum said after the Giants held a post-All-Star break workout at AT&T Park on Thursday night.

Lincecum is in the final season of a $40.5 million, two year contract.

"I expect Timmy to be in a Giant uniform," Sabean said on KNBR-680. "I find it hard to believe that he'd pitch elsewhere this year."
