I wasn't expecting anything big to happen too soon. Being handcuffed by the payroll, particularly Ibanez' 10m anchor, there isn't going to be a big splash this week.
Franceur, Diaz, meh. Are they really that much better than our current options? Still hearing rumors about Cuddyer for some reason. Not sure why Minny would even trade him, or what we have to offer in return. But I would be onboard with that move, albeit very unlikely.
The one thing that has me confused is Reuben professing that Brown doesn't have a definite roster spot on the big club, stating if we feel he needs more at bats then he's ok with him starting in the minors. Then what the hell did you have him wasting time on our bench in September?? If that's the case then he better add someone to help out in RF.
Gotta get some serious BP help too.
Pittsburgh Tankers, what a proud franchise: "We got to the point, if we won one more game or two, Mario Lemeiux would've been in New Jersey. That's how close we were." The plan was hatched over a midseason lunch between him and E.J. "We didn't actually try to throw games. But, you know, we went in there with the understanding ... we weren't going to be upset if we lost." The old coach admits it all now. They tanked it.
