Pirates Re-Sign Wil Ledezma

The Pirates have agreed to terms with left-hander Wil Ledezma on a one-year contract, according to a team press release.  The Bucs signed the 29-year-old to a minor league deal last winter and he delivered a 6.86 ERA in 27 relief appearances.  With the signing, Pittsburgh avoids arbitration with Ledezma.

Really though, do you hate any player? Span has love for everyone!

This isn’t meant to come across negative it seems like it, I enjoy your attitude towards baseball.

I appreciate it Herby.

Every player is tied for #1 on my favorite list!

Old story, Span-D. Tommy Lasorda is coaching third base and Pete Rose slides in. Tommy always used to chatter continously at players, and starts in at Pete.

“Hey, Pete, did you know that the Dodger players voted you their 2nd favorite Cincinatti Red?”

Pete looks over knowing there must be a joke coming, “Really?”

“Yeah! Really!” says Tommy pausing for effect. “The other 24 Reds tied for first!”

So I guess if you hated a player, he’d only be #2 on your list, too.

YES!! Great move!! 2 points for Coonelly and Huntington!!

Wil’s XFIP was nearly 4 runs lower than his era, and he didn’t allow many runs in the second half(not in mopup duties). He definitely deserves a chance to be in the Pirates bullpen next season…

Let’s see what he can do, but I’m not overly excited about this.

Any lefty throwing 95 MPH strikes deserves a shot to make this roster. When you have as many needs as the bucs have, he is a useful guy to have around. Come deadline time, as long as his ERA comes down (which just about every statistic shows him being incredibly unlucky on balls put in play) then he will be an insanely valuable chip for the meaningless amount money that Im sure we signed him for.

Neal gets a B+ for this signing unless the dollar figure exceeds 850k per yr…If its over a mill…then he gets a C.

Ledezma has moved around so much in the last few years, he just might sign a team friendly contract. At least he’ll know where he’s starting the season in 2011.
