Earlier this afternoon, the Pirates made a blockbuster extension for 26-year-old star Bryan Reynolds. The official deal is 8 years, $106.75MM guaranteed which is by far the largest in franchise history.
Many fans are thrilled with this signing, considering the owner is not a fan of spending money.
With this being the best start of a season the Pirates have had in over 20 years, this gives the fans some comfort that they will have superstars on the roster in the future. It also signals a willingness to win now after years of constant losing.
