The only smart move that 'organization' has made up to this point. Signing the only bat on this roster who shows some sort of consistency. Good job on that no-brainer move.
Pirates call press conference on Sanchez signing

Pirates second baseman Freddy Sanchez, all apparently clear with his physical this morning, will sign his three-year contract extension today.
The team has called a PNC Park news conference for 2 p.m. to make the announcement, though the time is subject to change.
The parties agreed yesterday to a deal that offers two guaranteed years plus an unusual option for 2010. The team has the right to exercise it, but Sanchez also can trigger it by performing at a certain level in the first two seasons.
