I may be making more out of this than necessary, but a soon to be 32 year old ball player with a one year contract is not the kind of player the Pirates should be counting on to be a big contributor. Just my $0.02.

The real question is who is he blocking? As far as I can see, the answer is, "nobody". McCutcheon isn't ready yet, and it looks to me as if Pearce never really will be.


250-300 ABs is fine, but the closer we get to 400 is an indication of how bad things are going in my opinion. Hinske at 400+ ABs means 1) someone got hurt 2) someone crapped the bed 3) Hinske has naked pis of someone high up in the chain of command.

I think it's pretty safe to assume that somebody will be hurt. After all, Hinske is the top backup at four positions, and LaRoche the Younger is already having back trouble. Also, as a left handed bat Hinske will get tons of PH opportunities.
