BEST OF MAXIM
If standing in line for three hours to get an autograph is your thing, then no doubt you had a great time at the San Francisco Giants’ annual FanFest today.
I went the past two years and I can tell you from my own experience, it ain’t all that.

Tim Lincecum showed up at AT&T Park on Friday with a hooded sweatshirt pulled over his cap and signature shaggy hair, hiding his appearance.
Speaking publicly Friday for the first time since he and the Giants agreed to their deal on Jan. 24, Tim Lincecum calmly rebutted the assumptions of his skeptics as if they were so many helpless hitters.

This week's edited KNBR conversation between Giants catcher Buster Posey and Brian Murphy and Paul McCaffrey: Murphy: Looking back a little bit, how frustrating was it to sit on the sidelines and then see what happened...
Star says he's still not 100 percent recovered from devastating injury
Tim Lincecum said the two-year contract he reached with the Giants is where he and the team "found the most common ground" and he fully expects future conversations about a longer term contract that would buy out his free-agent years.
