Kovacevic: Pirates still playing small ball

Totally fair if somewhat brutal assessment:

And I really can’t see where Huntington was coming from when he made these remarks to reporters last week in Dallas: “We’ll still look to find moves to make us better, but we feel like we’ve taken a big step forward, whether it’s bigger or smaller moves. We’ve put this organization in position to take another big step forward next year.”

Big, clearly, is a relative concept.

What, they should have gone up to $36 Million on Cuddyer?

Is it time to stop acting as if the difference between "McClatchy" and "Nutting" ownership is significant in any way?

Also, the Paul Maholm free-agent sweepstakes is at such a fever pitch that no one has even bothered to change the first sentence of his Wikipedia page from "...for the Pittsburgh Pirates" to "...who is currently a free agent". Can they just bring him back already?
