Too many bucks for these Bucs
Sep 29 - The Pirates are unlikely to exercise reliever Damaso Marte's 2007 option for $3 million, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
"I like the team. I like Pittsburgh," Marte told the newspaper. "I hope I stay."

$3 mil is a lot for a middle reliever. I guess he could be a solid setup man. He handles LH and RH very well, but for some reason walks a lot more righties. He seems to be picky with them. WHIP is 1.08 vs. LH and 1.67 vs. RH.

Maybe he will settle for less than $3 mil

If the Reds have a chance to sign him then they should do it.

If Littlefield had half a brain he'd pick up the option and flip him somewhere for a prospect.

Lefty with a career ERA of 3.28, in his prime? 3M isn't so much for a guy like that in this day and age. I'd pay him 3M in a heartbeat.
