Giants Still Attempting To Sign Matt Cain To Extension, According To Report

The San Francisco Giants would love for nothing more than to ink their invaluable No. 2 right-handed starter, Matt Cain, to a long-term contract extension. Now that the Los Angeles Dodgers have new owners who are flush with cash and looking for big returns on their enormous investments, all bets are off regarding the future of the National League West. Cain and his representatives have set a soft deadline of Friday for suspended contract talks for the duration of the season.

According to Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area, the Giants are still attempting to get a deal done with Cain before that deadline passes and negotiations are said to be heating up.

The Giants certainly want to lock up their starter before he becomes a free agent at season's end and bots for greener pastures. Any deal with Cain is expected to be in the five-year/$100 million range.
