The Pirates might be done for the winter

Here’s a two-tweet sequence from Jerry Crasnick on Friday: 

You’ll notice, of course, that none of these teams are the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates have seemed interested in Francis since the start of the winter, but there’s been very little word on that front since Erik Bedard signed. They were also almost completely uninterested in Paul Maholm, a similar but better pitcher that signed for a reasonable price. 

It’s impossible to say for now whether or not the Pirates are completely done dealing this winter, but at this point they’ve been silent for six weeks and it’s easy to think that they’re probably not planning on doing much more.

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.
