Extension for Torres: bad idea

Via Bucs Dugout, where Charlie says it better than I could.

Spending money unnecessarily on the most fungible commodity in baseball--relievers over 30 years old--is simply a bad idea. We did the identical thing a few years ago with Brian Boehringer, and it turned out badly.

The Pirates should buck up, live with the uncertainty that building a bullpen inevitably entails, and trust their ability to cobble one together with Rick White and Solomon Torres equivilents each year. They have actually been pretty good at this over the past few years.
