Jeff Blair has reported within the past hour at globesports.com that the Alex Rios-for-Tim Lincecum deal with the San Francisco Giants is dead in the water.

Over at McCovey Chronicles, everyone is just sideways over the wisdom of giving a five-year deal to a player who's had only one good offensive season.
