Giants Front Office Targeting Long Term Deals For Lincecum, Posey

The San Francisco Giants front office is not finished yet.

Madison Bumgarner's five-year contract extension precedes even more important priorities for the Giants organization.

According to a report by Andrew Baggarly from CSN Bay Area, Giants Vice President Bobby Evans reached out with the agents of stars Buster Posey and Tim Lincecum in regards to locking the two up long-term.

After completing Madison Bumgarner's five-year extension, Giants vice president Bobby Evans touched base with the agents for Lincecum and Posey on Monday, and said there was mutual interest in keeping both stars in Giants uniforms for the longer term.

"Really, it was to remind them of our view of them as a priority," Evans said. "It's reiterating what they already know. We'd like to see them as Giants into the future." (Via: CSN Bay Area)

Lincecum has struggled early on in the 2012 season, but has made the All-Star game four years in a row and also won the National League Cy Young Award in back to back seasons in 2008 and 2009. "The Freak" was drafted by the Giants in 2006 at No. 10 overall, and he's been worth the investment.

Posey on the other hand is considered to be one of the best young catchers in the major leagues. The Georgia native was drafted in 2008 by the Giants at No. 5 overall. In his first full season with the Giants in 2010 he garnered National League Rookie of the Year honors while helping the team win the World Series that year.
