He probably won't be answering any questions from this guy. They aren't exactly happy thoughts.

I asked 2 questions.
1. Do the Pirates have any interest in Andruw Jones?
2. And I told him that the Pirates should hold open tryouts for the team.

I hope that the answer to #1 was no.

And as for #2, I know they did have open tryouts a couple of years that Littlefield was GM. Not sure if they still do. I don't believe a single person was signed as a result of them, as you would expect.

I remember the Pirates having open tryouts for 2 or 3 season while I was in High School playing Legion Ball (97-99) because if you were going to the tryout you needed to get some form signed by your coach and the local American Legion Baseball officials for permission to go...

I only know this because one guy on my team who was one of ones who didn't see any time at all went to try out...The tryout was at Three Rivers Stadium

Does winning a third world reality show qualify as an open tryout? Just asking.
