Not surprised. I was of the opinion that it was even money whether or not he would finish the season down there. Those teams want to win and will only carry potential / dead weight for so long.

The question now is can Bob get out of his contract due to conduct or visa issues. If he can he will. If he can’t then Kang will be given every opportunity and then some to make the team.

Well he hasn't been getting paid since he was placed on restricted list, so they won't be out any money.

If he can get back in the US do the Pirates want him? That was my question. My opinion is that Kang wants to come back to get his $6 million over the next 2 years. If he performs he is a huge bargain and to most teams gambling the $6 million is well worth it. To this leadership team I am not so sure he is worth the risk. If they can get out of his contract by way of not aggressively helping him get back in the country as his employer I think they will.

I think they'll work hard to get him back.

As to his BA, he's coming off a season of no activity and is a fastball hitter in a junkball league.

That's a good point you make there at the end. Yeah, he might not be done quite yet. I mean, he can always start the year in the minors.

I want him back, and I assume the Pirates do too.

Chances are he will be the same guy. It will just take some time to get there.
