The Pirates today agreed to terms with two shortstops, Anderson Machado and Pedro Lopez, on minor league contracts with invitations to the major league portion of spring training.

How long is the line around PNC Park right now? I sure hope they have a dual bobblehead with these two.

Jackie Hernandez was a HOF compared to these two.

I wonder if fans of every other team are this sarcastic when the organization signs minor league filler guys, or if this is unique to a special breed of Pirates fans??
