Comments on: 2013 Could Be the Season Where Jameson Taillon is Finally Unleashed http://www.piratesprospects.com/2013/03/2013-could-be-the-season-where-jameson-taillon-is-finally-unleashed.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

They’ve been around the game for a while, have enough dough, have played in less than ideal circumstances and now …… finally have found a home. They both LIKE being a Pirate.

i actually see both of them WANTING to resign, and to lead the young studs in a dynamic starting rotation.

Hopefully his appearance is better than the one I saw of Cole’s (where he got hit by a line drive).

If JT gets hit by a line drive, I’m not going to any more games….lol

Meaning, he might not receive an offer of 13-14 million for one year, but at his age, if he could get one last deal for 2-3 years, and approaching or slightly over 20 mil, he’d take it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get around 20 for 2 years if he plays well this season.

And surpluses are always great in a staff
I don’t see wandy opting out. I believe his player option will be for 13-14 million. I just don’t see a 35 year old gets more than that.

Wandy has a player option, and would probably decline if he pitches well, just looking at the money floating around this off-season.

I guess they could try to keep one of them. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to try and get compensation picks for each player. But I don’t see both returning.

“A more conservative route would put Taillon in the majors in 2014, which would work out well for the Pirates, since A.J. Burnett and Wandy Rodriguez will probably both be gone after the 2013 season.”

If both pitched well this year and if Cole succeeds after he arrives, if the Pirates are on the verge of competing in 2014, won’t the Bucs need a #3 type like Burnett or Wandy? Will they be gone because it’s preposterous to pay a #3 as much as they will command? or because it’s preposterous to hope that they could pitch well for yet another season? or both?

He and Cole need to get it done if the organization is to challenge for pennants. The fans have waited decades for this moment to come.
