Pirates lose again

February 9, 2011 - Mike Mathison
Bucs pitcher Ross Ohlendorf won his arbitration hearing Wednesday, earning a raise from $439,000 to $2,025,000.

Apparently arbitrators Steven Wolf, Fredric Horowitz and Robert Herzog decided that a 1-11 record, a 4.07 ERA with 79 strikeouts and 44 walks in 21 games was enough to earn Ohlendorf a $1.586 million dollar raise.

Can I please have my next contract talks in front of them?

The Pirates had argued he should be paid $1.4 million. That was a million dollar raise and THAT was too high.

Wow, not a good way for the Pirates to begin the season.

If that does not say that mediocrity is awarded all too well, I don't what know else would make the argument.
