Comments on: Pirates Interested in Aaron Cook http://www.piratesprospects.com/2011/11/pirates-interested-in-aaron-cook.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

I mean this team needs some starting pitching. Cook is far from the top of my list and would be a bad signing IF he was the only arm brought in.

Just taking a look at the agents there are 15 starting pitchers I would take over him. Six of them (Wilson, Jackson, Buehrle, Oswalt, Vazquez and Kuroda) are probably highly unlikely targets but that still leaves 9 players.

In alphabetical order those players are Bedard, Capuano, Francis, Harang, Harden, Hernandez, Maholm, Marquis, Pineiro.

Plus there are players like Millwood and Penny who I value about the same.
