I'm not surprised, the going rate for an average major league starting pitcher these days is in the 10-12 million range. Pirates probably have to offer a bit of a premium to attract free agents and are willing to gamble for a higher upside to get a starter at a relatively reasonable price. They'll probably regret it, but it's not like they're sinking the ship at that rate.
