Pirates Have Multiyear Offer Out To Sanchez

Pirates president Frank Connelly verified tonight that at some point this offseason, the Bucs made a multiyear offer to second baseman Freddy Sanchez.  It doesn't mean anything is close, however.  Sanchez and the Pirates are currently $800K apart on their 2008 figures.

Back on January 7th, Dejan Kovacevic reported that Sanchez had not received a multiyear offer.  But even at that time the Pirates were keen to the idea of signing Sanchez through his two remaining arbitration years and tacking on an option to buy out his first of free agency.  Ultimately I could see a guaranteed third year.

The 30 year-old Sanchez hit .304/.343/.442 as the Pirates' second baseman in '07.  Meanwhile the average NL second baseman hit .272/.341/.418.
