President Obama honored the San Francisco Giants' 2012 World Series championship on Monday, saying the team is “ making this a habit .” The Giants won their second world championship in three years in October, beating the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in the final game after nearly being knocked out of the playoffs several times. “It's no wonder that your own fans still refer to Giants baseball as torture,” Obama joked. In 2010, the Giants beat the Texas Rangers 4-1 to win their first World Series since 1954.

Tim Lincecum is staying put with the San Francisco Giants just as he hoped, reaching agreement Tuesday on a $35-million, two-year contract through the 2015 season. The deal is pending a physical, which had yet to be scheduled. Lincecum has a full no-trade clause in the new deal. General Manager Brian Sabean said when the season ended that among his priorities was bringing back the two-time National League Cy Young Award winner, who also indicated he cherishes familiarity and wanted to stay with the only club he has known.

SAN FRANCISCO — In the clubhouse of the San Francisco Giants, Marco Scutaro answers to the nickname "Blockbuster. " As in: The Dodgers got $260 million worth of players from the Boston Red Sox, and we got you. The Giants could not be happier. If they win the National League Championship Series, their scrappy second baseman just might be selected the most valuable player. Scutaro batted .362 after the Giants acquired him from the Colorado Rockies on July 28. He is batting .458 in the NLCS, including a .474 average since St. Louis outfielder Matt Holliday injured him in a controversial slide in Game 2. "I got a little fame from getting hit from Holliday," Scutaro said.

A San Francisco Giants executive assailed state Sen. Quentin Kopp after a ballot proposal that would have financed a new ballpark was defeated. "We pleaded with him several times early on in this process to sit down with us and to look at all the documents and to ask whatever questions he had about Proposition P," Giants Executive Vice President Corey Busch said. "He refused to do it." Busch criticized Kopp for remaining silent on the ballpark issue, which lost by only about 1,800 votes.
