Hernandez for two years at 7.5 million (I know a million more) would have been better than Barajas!

Did you just come up with that all by yourself because he has been with 4 teams in his 13 year career, and has NEVER, let me repeat NEVER been with a team for only one year. And he was just recently with the Reds for 3 years, and before that he was with the Orioles for 3 years. So he hardly moves around year to year. Do some research!

He also seems to move from team to team every year. I’d be interested in seeing how the pitching staff’s have fared for each of the teams he has been with the past 10 years. I’d also like to know what each of his managers thought of his whole game other than his hitting, and how his head is screwed on.

Before anyone chimes in, I am aware that Barajas moves around a bit too, but we already have on record some pretty good things said about his overall game from other managers and staff. Also, he was dealt at the last couple trade deadlines to teams trying to win it all, which are different situations than just moving from team to team aimlessly.

I personally like Barajas power hitting more than I like Hernandez’. But I’m not really up on the field captain side of things for both, or their mental states.

I can’t believe more people aren’t talking about how odd and random the whole Type A/B reclassification thing was handled by MLB.

I do know that Tim is planning to bring 1200 copies to Piratefest on the 2nd printing.

What will the price of the book be at Piratefest?

Yes, Pirates Prospects will be at Piratefest with a booth.  We will also be starting a radio campaign in the next week to promote the book and our presence at Piratefest.  We are also lining up a live on-air spot with The FAN from Piratefest, as well.

We will definitely be interviewing front office folks and players, just not sure of the format at this point.

It’s important to get your pre-orders in for the Pirates Prospects Guide Book so that Tim can turn the first order around and get a second printing for Piratefest.
