Hitting .188 in winter ball says a lot.

Fan interest is very low. This would at least make a buzz for the Pirates if they can get him at a decent bargain I say they should at least see what he has and take a chance. This is a former mlb star he hit 50 homeruns 4 years ago if he can get in shape he could be a 20-30 homerun guy. Sure he will strikeout and not have a super high batting average but the Pirates dont really have anyone a whole lot better.

The fans would have to HAVE a buzz to think this is a smart move, Ryann. I think you mentioned in an earlier post that we should sign Sosa for the same reason. Don't you remember Morris and Burnitz and Randa? There was far more logic in the argument to keep Bay and Nady then there will ever be to sign these guys, no matter how buzzed I get.

If you want buzz, sign Barry Bonds!

At least with Bonds you know you'll sell tickets and get 20 or so home runs out of him.

Morris and Burnitz and Randa ALL are very diffrent then a sosa, bonds, or jones. The later 3 are all household former mlb superstars. Jones and bonds could get you at least 20 homeruns each. Sosa and jones could all be acquired quite cheaply then randa burnitz or morris.
Dont compare Sosa Bonds and Jones. To morris burnitz and randa. They are very diffrent cases.

Andruw Jones will probably not give you 20 jacks. His offensive numbers have gone in the crapper the last couple of seasons.

BB won't be an everyday player, but he can play 2-3 days a week and hit 20-25 jacks for you. If nothing else, he'd be the first real left handed threat the Bucs have had off the bench in a long time.

The key there is that Jones is a FORMER superstar. He hasn't hit worth a damn for TWO YEARS. He hit THREE homeruns last year. Why would you expect that to change? He hits right handed and PNC is tough on righties. It is pure fantasy to think he can hit 20 homers here.

Aside from that, he would be gone at the end of the year. That means we would have to spend 2010 figuring out who among Moss, Morgan, Pearce, etc. deserves to start. I would rather accomplish that this year so that we can move forward.
