This is a signing that would be a great compliment to a team that didn't lose two of the best players from its previous years starting lineup and not attempt to replace them.


This may sound picky but it is really just that I couldn't understand this sentence until I changed the word to "complement".
Is that what you meant?

So Hinske's signing brings an end to Doug Meint's time in Pittsburgh

Quote:
"The signing of Eric would realistically . . . I don't want to say eliminate, because we told Doug going into spring training last year that he wasn't going to make the team . . . but it certainly decreases the chances of Doug making our major league team," Huntington said this afternoon at the news conference to announce the signings of pitcher Paul Maholm and Hinske.

That's not being picky; that's just good English.
