Pirates Offseason:
Pirates saved 10 million this season between Martes suspension, Kang's visa, J. Hughes release and Watson trade

Needs for Pirates: 1) Power hitting 3B 2) Veteran LHSP 3) lefty bullpen help 4) 4th Outfielder until A. Meadows is ready

Already got UTY Sean Rodriguez so check and started to help bullpen with Kontos but they need another lefty....

Internal option move Jose Osuna to 3B. External option Sign Mike Moustakas 4 yrs 44-52 million *If the pirates trade McCutchen. Or else this would never happen.

Sign Jhoulys Chacin 3 years 15-18 million

Mustakas is going to get a lot more money.

Big Delusional Bird, Moustakas will certainly get more than what you suggested probably double, and more like 5-6 years.

Veteran LH SP is not Chacin. He's right-handed. He would probably be a good signing though.

He WILL NOT make 22 million a year batman that's Mike Trout money. And Moustakas is not Trout.

Thats 11-13 million a year Moustakas, who is getting 8.5 now. Ill even bump it up to 13-15 million a year for 4 years. (Which is McCutchen money) But that was a realistic pirates offer who never give out big contracts especially to players whos about to be 29. They prefer to over pay for below-average players like in recent memory. (Daniel Hudson, John Jaso, Antonio Bastardo)

Mind you I'd rather them spend big money on impactful players instead of overpaying for basically nothing.

Have you not been paying attention to what players have been getting thru free agency?

Moustakas will certainly get way more than the tiny contract you've predicted. Probably closer to 5/ 100 than anything.

Wow, you really are delusional. Playeres are making 30 million a year now, do you not pay any attention to the game at all? Moustakas will most defintely get 20 million a year. The fact you put Trout in this conversation is hilarious. He should be making more than 22 million and actually next year Trout will be making 32 million.

BigBird, this is the MLB, not the NFL.

Homer Bailey received $105M over 6 years. do I have to elaborate?

I really didn't fully read your last comment Bigbird, you cannot compare salaries like that. What someone signed years ago was the norm salary then. Salaries in baseball are going up, big time. The Qualifying offer after the season will 18 million, i think i read. If you are trying to say Moustakas won't get 18 million, you are more than delusional.
