Perrotto: Should Pirates Retain Their Two Free Agents? (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates will be able to bring back most of their roster in 2023 if general manager Ben Cherington desires.

That is a good thing, in a way, because owner Bob Nutting is unlikely to give Cherington much money to spend on payroll again. Cherington as much as said so at the end of the season.

“I don’t believe focusing on payroll is the right thing to focus on in a town like Pittsburgh, in a place where a winning team is not going to be built in a way that is in other places,” he said.  “The way we wake up every day and do our work, it’s just not the thing that we think about.”

Thus, there will be no splashes in free agency this winter. Maybe a ripple, at best.
