It might not work out OK in the end, though. Either way, I'm reminded of how many pundits were so sure, just a few weeks ago, that of course Derek Jeter would never leave the Yankees. Something like that would be impossible. Except it's really not impossible, and never was.

Let me put into perspective how bad things are for the Pirates—they haven’t been relevant since the 1992 National League Championship Series. The hard luck loser of Game seven was Doug Drabek.

This doesn't make the decision to decline the club option automatic. Whether a club has use for it or not, an asset is an asset and should be treated as such. Throwing away assets that other clubs could use before the maximum amount of value is extrapolated is always a mistake. Therefore, the appropriate question is, "how much trade value will Miguel Olivo have if he's under contract for 1 year and $2.5 million?"
