Tim Lincecum's ex-landlord is suing the Giants pitcher, claiming he trashed his Mission District townhome, causing more than $200,000 in damages.

According to the lawsuit, which was filed yesterday in San Francisco, Lincecum, better known as The Freak, broke plaintiff's personal property and stained, defaced, tore, injured or destroyed items inside the furnished Hampshire Street home. He also damaged bedding, doors, carpet, pillows, kitchenware, linens, furniture, household appliances, art work, decorations, patio furniture, lights, lamps and mirrors, said Mindy Freile, his ex-landlord who filed the suit.

Freile is seeking $350,000 in damages.

Lincecum was supposed to leave the apartment in "broom clean" condition before moving out in February 2011 when his lease expired. But when he finally vacated, the apartment was in shambles, the claim says.

Rick Thurman, Lincecum's agent in Los Angeles told the Chron that the lawsuit was completely frivolous.  "It's a totally unwarranted lawsuit, and I'm not going to dignify it more by commenting further," Thurman said.

Here's a copy of the lawsuit.

Lincecum is, without any doubt, not "better known as The Freak".  Yes, he is *also* known as The Freak.  But he is much better known as Tim Lincecum.
