Not So Fast Humberto

It is widely believed that the Pirates will not be bringing back catcher Humberto Cota for the 2007 season to backup starter Ronny Paulino. However, with the high cost of free agents, the Pirates have switched gears and are re-evaluating their stance.

The Pirates have until midnight Tuesday to tender Cota and avoid having to try and sign him through free agency.

Cota is playing winter ball in his native Mexico and went into the weekend hitting .261 with six homers and 21 RBIs in 36 games for Hermosillo.
