Matt Cain Contract: Giants Close To Inking 5 Year, $110 Million Deal According To Report

The San Francisco Giants and pitcher Matt Cain have been working diligently to get a new contract signed before the start of the 2012 regular season, and according to the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea, sources have told him that Cain will indeed ink a new deal before the Friday start of the season.

Per John Shea on Twitter:

Cain had been talking like he was willing to wait to test out the markets after the season, a la Albert Pujols and the Cardinals last season, but also has noted his love for the Giants and the Bay Area. We will have more on this soon, hopefully with a official update on Cain remaining with the Black and Orange.
