The Pirates agreed to terms on a 1-year deal with closer Joel Hanrahan and starter Charlie Morton. Both players are entering their 1st season of arbitration eligibility.

They couldn't have picked a better man to honor,'' said longtime scout Ken Bracey of the Dodgers. "Carl is one of a kind, a great baseball guy, a very religious...
The Pirates have been awfully quiet of late. They haven't really made much news since the Erik Bedard signing at the end of the winter meetings. Things are going to move quickly over the next ten days on the free agent market (prediction: Prince Fielder will sign by the January 25th at the latest; things will fall into place fast once the Rangers' negotation with Yu Darvish...
