Bucco Blog On Cubs, Pirates Payrolls

Couple of interesting notes just came in via the fine Bucco Blog.

First off, the Cubs may push payroll all the way up to $120MM.  The author indicates that Lou Piniella wants Aramis Ramirez, Jason Schmidt, and Gary Sheffield for his 2007 Cubs.

Second, the Pirates are looking at a $65MM payroll for next season.  Bucco Blog says that means at least $25MM to spend.  With roughly $35MM tied up, the Pirates should be big spenders no matter how the exact math stacks up. 

Lot of money flowing out of the NL Central this winter.
