It's only February 9, 2011, but the Pittsburgh Pirates seem to already be looking ahead to 2012. Ross Ohlendorf, who Baseball Reference compares favorably to Buster Narum and Marion Fricano, received a $1.56 million raise when he won his arbitration case earlier today. Now, pitcher wins are probably the last measuring stick of a pitcher's worth, but Ohlendorf still went 1-11 in 2010 when he made $439,000. He also had a 2.0 WAR and was limited to just 21 starts with back and shoulder injuries.
"Give that man a raise!"
