Johnny Estrada never meant to offend you

Earlier this week, Johnny Estrada almost signed with the Pirates, then signed with the Nationals and said simply that he "didn't want to sign" in Pittsburgh. Today, his agent wants to make sure that you know that he didn't mean to offend anyone.

"Johnny was very excited about coming to Pittsburgh and playing for the Pirates and Gary Varsho," Schwartz said, referring to the Pirates' bench coach with whom Estrada has a history. "The reason he didn't come had nothing to do with the city or the team. It was simply because we couldn't work out a deal with the club."
Aaaand you've officially hit rock bottom when Johnny Estrada's agent feels bad enough for you that he feels like he needs to patronize you. Being a Pirate fan is great, isn't it?
