The Pirates have enormously cut payroll with all of these trades -- McLouth, Sanchez, Wilson, Ian Snell, Adam LaRoche -- and will have plenty of money with which to attract free agents to fill their many holes. What will be interesting is to see if they are willing to spend that money and, if so, whether they can attract better players to the worst franchise in baseball. If they fail to spend the money they’ve saved, that would be a horrific breaching of faith with the fan base

Now isn't the time to add the pieces. I don't even want the Pirates to touch free agency this off-season. Let the players develop and when the time is right, become buyers. That could be after the 2010 season at the earliest.

Free Agency will be used when the Pirates are ready to contend for a division title and a player is needed to fill in a hole or two. Until this team is ready to contend, this organization should be letting the kids develop.
