Contract Extensions




Was wondering what everyone thought about the possible contract situations coming up for the Buccos. With the lack of improvement shown by Tony Sanchez in AAA, it is probably fair to say that Martin should be at the top of the list. What do you think a possible extension would look like for him? He said in 2013 that the Pirates offer was over and beyond the competitors but that he was also looking for a short term deal, in order to "cash in" with his following contract. Honestly I don't seem him demanding more than 10 mil a year. I just don't see him making Yadier money, and the Yankees clearly over paid for McCann. But it is also obvious that the pirates want to lock up Polanco very soon. Walker is arbitration eligible for a few years, so it's probably not worth extending him with his injury concerns. The rotation looks to be pretty crowded with the amount of pitching prospects rising through the system. Looking at a rotation of possible Cole, Morton, Locke, Taillon, Worley/Cumpton for next year. With Sadler and Kingham looking like possible end of the rotation starters. Clearing up the Wandy salary may allow us to go after another high upside pitcher.
