As I watch JVB leave, I wonder if he would have been a legit MLB hitter.

And why couldn't the Pirates pull an Ankiel and at least give it a try. Seriously, what do they have to lose.

I believe I remember reading a quote from Van B in which he said that his shoulder surgery robbed him of his power at the plate.

That aside, he's a lot older than Ankiel was when he made his switch. I think it would be a waste of time. I'd rather see him moved to the bullpen. Some of the most unlikely pitchers have salvaged a career just by moving to relief.


The bullpen is his ONLY chance.


No, selling insurance or going back to his hometown and coaching the local high school baseball team are choices he needs to consider too
