PBN Around the Horn: They’re Going to Have to Spend Eventually… Right?!



Pittsburgh Pirates Jacob Stallings

Welcome to the PBN Around the Horn. Here you’ll find news and notes from across Major League Baseball, your Pittsburgh Pirates, and around the Sports Now network.

Update (9:38 p.m.) – Teams are interested in acquiring Jacob Stallings from the Pirates

We here at Pittsburgh Baseball Now hope you and your family had a peaceful Thanksgiving and that both stomachs and hearts are full! Back to business with today’s Around the Horn and the lack of moves the Pirates are making. When you look at affordable deals like the one Jon Gray received, and Michael Lorenzen, it makes you wonder what the Pirate’s front office is thinking. 

Maybe the lack of moves are due to the uncertainty of a potential lockout, or maybe there is a grander scheme we have yet to see. Still, there comes a time to spend some money, and paying four years at $56 million in the case of Jon Gray or one year $7 million for Lorenzen isn’t out of the realm of possibility. Let us know what you think. Is this asking too much, too early?
