Dodgers reportedly interested in Pirates starter Paul Maholm

Jul 20, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reported yesterday that the Dodgers “have been very aggressive in their pursuit of pitching” and today Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette quotes “an industry source” who says they’re interested in Pirates left-hander Paul Maholm.
General manager Neal Huntington indicated previously that the Pirates don’t plan to be very active at the trading deadline and Maholm is under contract for $5.75 million next season with a $9.75 million option or $750,000 buyout for 2012.
His win totals are underwhelming in large part because his teammates are always so horrible, but Maholm has a 4.05 ERA in 515 inning during the past three seasons and is still just 28 years old.

    i was about to say why would u ever go after him hes terrible…yet i forget that he shut down the phils twice this year and probably, if not definitely, has the worst supporting cast this yr and over the past 3 yrs…isnt that a little pricy for a team that basically said theyre not spending any money this season?
