Little kids aren’t quite sure what to make of Tim Lincecum

Sergio Romo wearing an “I just look illegal” t-shirt at the Giants’ championship parade yesterday was pretty funny, but my favorite picture from the event is lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom’s daughter reacting to Tim Lincecum:

And the best part is that in a different picture 3-year-old Montana Newsom seems to like Romo and his crazy beard quite a bit.

The Giants announced on Monday night the signing of outfielder Austin Jackson. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, it’s a two-year, $6 million deal with performance incentives that allow Jackson to earn up to an additional $2.5 million for a total of $8.5 million.

Jackson, who soon turns 31 years old, spent last season with the Indians. In 318 plate appearances, he hit .318/.387/.482 with seven home runs, 35 RBI, and 46 runs scored.

The Giants have been on the hunt for a center fielder and Jackson addresses that need relatively cheaply. Jackson will join Hunter Pence and newcomer Andrew McCutchen in the outfield.
