A part of me wishes they would throw some money into at least two starters and at DLee.

I wouldn’t bring him back to Buccoland just because he once appeared to be an up and coming good to excellent player in 2007-08. He obviously is not what the Braves want for 2012, why should we?

Not to mention his power would probably return a little with a return to PNC(deep RF in ATL)…not saying that he would return to his 2008 numbers but he definitely would be a better bench option then X Paul…

I would much rather have Jones than McClouth at this point if it is a choice between the two of them. However, if they are looking at McClouth for to fill Xavier Paul’s role and he come cheaply enough this would be a solid move.

At 30 he’s worth a flier but i wouldn’t pay 2 mil for him.

Last year’s bench was woeful. If he’s cheap enough I don’t see the harm. My thoughts on Jones are that the Pirates will move him to 1st. There aren’t many $2MM F.A. available.

Maybe it’s the usual window dressing, but I’m happy if the Pirates are actually looking at McClouth and Stewart.
