Pirates Attempt to Get Even Worse

Are you a 32 year-old major league pitcher? Have you never thrown over 200 innings in a season? Is your career ERA 5.09 (90 ERA+)? Well, the Pittsburgh Pirates have a job for you. Jaret Wright, I know you all remember him, has signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates and will make $800k if he makes the major league roster.

In other news: The (Devil) Rays locked up James Shields with a very creative contract. Take note Yankees. Also, the Mets are now the frontrunners for Johan Santana, pretty much because they're still interested.
