Welcome back. If you have been gone six months does that mean you missed the Bucs late season collapse?

If so, maybe you taking a vacation coinciding with the collapse makes it YOUR fault?! ;)

But seriously and as for the what else:

Minor trades have landed Clint Robinson and a couple of arms
Russell Martin signed to a two-year deal to replace Barajas
Fransisco Liriano brought in for two years
Karstens let go (but Chaz-Mo remains)

And I believe a new hitting coach was brought in...?

Nice to see you post again Hugo.

You are correct NSMaster56...Jay Bell has been added as the hitting coach, which I think is a positive.

Thanks guys,

yeah good to be back, well the plan was to get her here perminent, but belorussian government isnt the easiest one, so when she got the
permit to stay here, they decided to give it her 6 month later, so i decided then i would be with here in belarus those 6 months..

Like the Jay Bell signing as hitters coach and a shot with Liriano (see what he can do in the NL).

The Martin signing at C gives me defensively a good feeling, offensively i dont know, the guys numbers went down every year..
Who is CLint Robinson?

Robinson actually had a much better minor league career than Jones did, but for some reason the Royals were not willing to give him a shot. Jones probably has more power than Robinson does, but Robinson appears to have much better plate discipline. The real question for me is, if Robinson gets a shot, whether Robinson will maintain his batting average and play acceptable defense.

The fact that Robinson is right-handed and will play in a park that saps power from right-handed hitters also matters.

Jones' value to the Bucs lies primarily in his ability to hit right-handed pitchers and make them pay for mistakes at PNC Park. That's why #46 is so valuable to the Pirates in 2013 -- none of the other 1B options (Gaby Sanchez, Jerry Sands, Clint Robinson) are lefty hitters.

Robinson is a lefty, he's almost a Jones clone. Not that that guarantees him hitting well in the bigs.
