Think he is overpaid, interesting how Bucs will pay market rate for players that are back-ups but don’t want any part of paying salary of experienced starting player or pitcher.

I do think McLouth will rebound in Pittsburgh though, and he will get his playing time as a fourth outfielder. Tabata has proven that he can’t stay healthy, and Presley’s had some weird injuries himself. 
It always seemed right after the trade that Nate was just so surprised and uncomfortable after spending his whole career in the Pirates organization and the move really messed him up and it went on to affect his play. It wasn’t long ago that he was one of the best hitters in the league and capable of a 30 hr season. I really think the Pirates struck quite a bargain here.
