In case you missed it earlier, the Pittsburgh Pirates added the final elusive piece to their playoff puzzle when they signed catcher Rod Barajas to a one year $4M deal with an option for 2013 at $3.5M.  Anytime you can add a 36 year old catcher with a career .284 OBP, you have to do it.  Right?  Congratulations Pittsburgh.  You just purchased a player with 7.2 career fWAR in over 1000 games.  Nicely done.

After being slapped with a restraining order for stealing Nick Cafardo's mail, I was forced into retirement for a brief period of time. As fun as it was to lounge around the community pool and play shuffleboard with noted internet columnist, Murray Chass, I quickly felt a yearning to write again. Now in my second tenure with Fire Brand, I have set lofty goals of achieving world domination, ending the plight of the hipsters, and becoming BFFs with Mike Trout. I am fluent in two languages (Sarcasm and English, in that order); have an intimate relationship with M&Ms; firmly believe that Lucille is the best character on Arrested Development; and spend my spare time trolling select members of the Boston media.
