Only Needs 99 Wins to Reach 100

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Ross Ohlendorf doubled his 2010 win total by defeating his team in arbitration this past week.  Ohlendorf’s 2010 record was, 1-11.   Under Major League Baseball’s Arbitration system this fine performance allowed Mr. Olendorf to quadruple his salary from $439,000 to just over 2 million per season.  After receiving the news of his victory Ohlendorf said, ” I’m looking to get at least five or six wins before the next arbitration.”    “Hopefully, that kind of success will get me six or seven million per season.”

There was no official comment from the Pirates but new manager Clint Hurdle, speaking off the record said, “If I had 99 more guy like Ross Ohlendorfs we could finally win a hundred games this year.”
