I wonder if the Pirates could buy that into a Club Option for 2014, which would be a lot more valuable to the Bucs. NH did a great job of getting some solid veterans to be our No.’s 1 & 2 for 2012 and 2013, and provide some time for our key prospects to have at least another year or part of 2013 to hone their skills before being brought to the majors.

“Burnett went 7-0 with a 2.00 ERA in his first 10 starts.”

Burnett won his Pirates debut, then lost his next two starts (one of which was the 12 ER game vs. St Louis). He then went undefeated in his next 12 starts (9-0, 3 no-decisions).

Mulder, Zito, Hudson type luck. Its much more likely we get one top notch SP, one back end guy, and one bullpen arm. Of course it could go the Mets route with Wilson, Izzy, Pulsipher and result in injuries.

However, the specter of Paul Wilson, et al, remains. It would be a huge turnaround for us, if all 3 came through.
