Second Fiddle Again, Durbin to Phils

After pursuing Durbin in a trade with Detroit, prior to Durbin being non-tendered by the Tigers, the Pirates have lost out a second time.  Durbin will be signing with the Phillies

This will be the second time in a week the Pirates have come up short in the bidding for a free agent pitcher.  Last week the Pirates were outbid for the services of Luis Vizcaino by the Rockies.

Other bits:

The Pirates have come to terms with two pitchers signing minor league deals.  Adam Bernero, 31, a right handed starter.  Also, Kuwatamania reigns.  Masumi Kuwata agreed to terms on a minor league deal.

The Pirates are not one of a dozen teams interested in Prior.  Read the line a few times, since it is worded oddly.

Chacon and Dotel are on the radar.  Which one will be strike three on the free agent front?
