I would also like them to make a bid for balfour, even though it would cost them a 2nd rd pick

Now the Rays will command a king’s ransom for him. At this point, Blanton would be a cheaper option as far as what the Pirates would have to give up to get him. Unfortunately, Blanton is not Garza.

Go after Blanton and Garza in trades and have a bullpen of Fuentes, Meek, Resop, Olsen, Morton, Hart and Karstens.
