Comments on: Candidates To Be Added To The 40-Man Roster Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

It seems like we have about 30 players vying for one or two spots. All they do is muddy the water and nobody really gets a fair shot. I would get rid of most of these players and start Doumit and Jones with Pearce backing them both up or platooning with them. They just have to live with Doumits fielding until they get a real power hitting corner. Pearce just has to prove if he fits in.
