The pirates have a lot of needs. One of them is left handed relieving, which they haven't been looking. Instead they've been looking at right handed free agents, even starters, which they have no need for, just as the management said. I'm not really sure what they are trying to do here, but hopefully this is all some good plan. I you are a true Buccos fan you know that last years rule fiver Donald Vale posted great numbers in the Arizona Fall League. Personally, I think that is definitely not enough lefties in the pen. Its just simple baseball.
I don't really care what kind of plan this is as long as it works. No lefties in the pen?! COME ON!!!! Looking at guys like Justin Duchscherer and Jamey Wright is a good idea, but its just pure fact that a team needs more than one half decent lefty in the bullpen.
