The Mid-Century modern home at 1901 Diamond Street has had an interesting development. It's been reported that Giants pitcher Matt Cain owns the property, and a quick check of its property records confirms that the abode belongs to Cain Revocable Lvg Tr, aka Matthew Cain and wife Chelsea. The Cain clan bought the 4-bed, 3-bath, 2,815 square foot Noe Valley in late 2008 for $2,050,000. It's now listed at $1,795,000, a $255,000 loss. It was first listed by the Cain family in September for $1,950,000, and quickly had its price reduced because of "motivated sellers." Barry Zito and Brian Wilson rent in the Marina and it's no secret that Tim Lincecum rented in the Mission. Perhaps Cain's fellow Giants pitchers sat him down and gave him a good talking to about the glorious joy renting brings, or perhaps he's looking to buy something bigger and better since he scored a $15M contract for 2012.
