Pirates avoid arbitration with Joel Hanrahan and Charlie Morton

The Pirates aggred to a one year, $4.1 million with Joel Hanrahan that has performance bonuses for games finished. That’s pretty expected from all sides, as the club hasn’t been discussing a long-term deal with Hanrahan. The club also came to terms with Chris Resop over the weekend, which leaves Garrett Jones, Charlie Morton, Jeff Karstens, Evan Meek, and Casey McGehee left on the list of arbitration-eligible players that they need to work a deal out with. 

UPDATE: Cross Morton off the list; he’s agreed to a one-year, $2.45 million deal. It’s his first year of arbitration.

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.
