Signing Grilli at a high annual (at or around $4mm per) may indicate that he will close, therefore reducing Hanrahan’s perceived value.

It’s a cycle that way- the more original reporting/the more instant stories, the more visitors, which means more people clicking ads and buying books, which means more resources to get reporting.
I am not sure what the excuse is at the other place, but it’s lackluster and a shame. But enough about that. Let’s hope the Bucs can get Grilli, if only because that strengthens their trade prospects.

A certain other major Pirates news outlet has been lax on reporting updates all week other than maybe once or twice a day. When I want Pirates news fast and first, I go here.

His out pitch was the hard slider and an above average fastball 95/96, but thinking he can maintain that type of velocity through age 37/38 is asking too much.

I bet he can post a ops north of .750. With Bonds in left and Sheff in right, Cutch will have to fly to cover ground.

Oh wait, we’re talking about signing Grilli.
