Pirates get the finger from Will Ohman

I’ve said this time and time again this off-season, and I’ll say it again: until the Pirates show that they’re turning things around, no free agents are going to be interested in coming to Pittsburgh. This is painfully clear today, after Will Ohman signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers after being offered a big league deal by the Pirates.

I don’t really think this is a big problem (we don’t really have an overwhelming need for free agents like Ohman in the next few years), but fans need to keep in mind that for now, the Pirates being involved in any sort of negotiations more likely means they’re being used as a bargaining tool.

About Pat Lackey

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.
