The new sleeked down and refined Tim Lincecum will be headed to open court soon as the case against him filed by his former land lady in 2011 is proceeding.
Via CBSSports Lincecum’s former landlady Mindy Friele first sued Lincecum back in 2011 for trashing an apartment to the estimated sum of $200,00.00.
The case was on hold as Lincecum pushed for confidential arbitration until two judges refused back in March of 2012, so the case is being put before the courts. Lincecum has fought hard against the allegations and many expect him to fight this thing tooth and nail until the end.
One does have to wonder why Lincecum has fought relentlessly for this amount of time for what’s essentially ‘chump change’ in regards to what he makes.
It will be quite interested to see how the new sophisticated ’Timothy’ Lincecum will handle the matter–but if it’s anything like his 2012 season it’s best he settles now.
