We just can't continue to run Diaz out there and worse yet, bat him at a key spot in the order. What has he done this year to deserve the #5 spot? Not a thing. Cut him.


The fact that he also brings no power to the table is really kind of mind-boggling.


I think Diaz has worn out his due as a Pittsburgh Pirate. Another free agent signing who just kind of came here and didn't perform up to what he was said to be. A right hander who could rake left handed pitching. It's never shown up. Get rid of him.

But, I wouldn't cut him just to open up a spot on the 25 man. Run him out there until the July deadline and see what you can get for him. There's going to be a contender, a little further along than the pirates, who needs a right handed bench guy.

I don't think there's a contender out there that would want Matt Diaz right now. I don't think any team would. All you hear is "he rakes against lefties" and yeah, he did. This year he hasn't raked against anything. Nor shown the slightest bit of pop in his bat. A hitter like him is near useless for any team.

I'm sure there's an independent league team looking to add his services...Maybe they could trade him for the Canseco Brothers!
