The Cain clan bought 1901 Diamond in Noe Valley back in late 2008 for $2,050,000. The 4-bed, 3-bath, 2,815 square foot abode was back on the market with a cheaper price tag of $1,950,000 three years later, and some Giants fans wondered if it was because Matt couldn't secure a solid long-term contract with the Giants. It didn't help that the price was quickly reduced to $1,795,000, with the listing citing "motivated sellers." Our theory? Pro ball players shouldn't buy a home away from home unless they're locked into a lengthy contract. It's probably better to rent (which the Cain family is currently doing over in the East Bay). 1901 Diamond sold this week for $1,800,000, $5,000 more than the last listed price, but $250,000 less than what the family paid for it.
