    Pirates | Marte's Option won't be picked up

    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.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    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.
