Maholm gets an extension

There’s no terms yet, but the Bucs locked up Paul Maholm this morning to a three-year deal with an option for a fourth. That fourth year is his first year of free agency, so it seems like a nice deal for the Pirates. Unless they’ve gone out and done something insane, all this does is lock down Maholm’s salary for the next three years. How Maholm performs in the future is obviously a pertinent question here and he’s next in line for “The Rotation” series I’m working on, so hopefully I’ll get to that early next week.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
