According to Clint, on the Pirates site, there are only two positions open for competition next year. Catcher and SS you mutter? Nope, the two corner OF spots. Barmes is the SS, not open for competition, and 'McKenry is back' so he is our catcher.

The longer he has been here and the more I hear come out of his mouth, the more I feel Hurdle and some above him on the management team need to go.

What do you want Clint to say? He isn't the GM, he has the roster he currently has right now. There is nothing to this. Let's see what NH can do this winter. He needs another AJ type trade and the long elusive FA hit.

How about 'no comment' or 'we will see in 2013' or 'we will have to sit down and evaluate this season and the players we will have at our disposal'. You know, something intelligent.

It would make alot more sense for the manager to say something more along the lines of "there is always open competition for every position", but nah you know he isn't gonna let his boy Clint Barmes ride the bench...

In my opinion we very much need a catcher, and I would bring in an outfielder who can at least compete with Marte and Snider for playing time, but otherwise yeah our lineup is pretty much set.

Sorry but I don't see it. He would have a hard time making a major league roster if it wasn't for his contract.

He is a well below average player whose skills have already declined.

Ralphie, I didn't say Tabata would. I'm saying that he must.
