Saunders is a decent player, but we need to use whatever trade chips we may have to try to bring in some hitting, preferably LaHair or Headley.

A.J. Burnett, James McDonald, and Erik Bedard. Saunders is an innings
eating left hander, so he’d be a good fit for the Pirates and PNC Park.
But with Jeff Locke and Rudy Owens pitching well in Triple-A, you’d
wonder why the Pirates would even be looking at a three month rental who
looks to be the fourth best option in the rotation.”

One possible answer: Nutting and Coonelly want to give the Yinzers a winner ASAP without doing anything too stupid.
