I don’t think either is ready for retirement.

If we could get Dempster or Garza, I’d be happy. Just don’t trust Correia or Bedard… Maybe now is the time to bring up Owens or Locke and see what they can do.

And, WADR Victorino is a leadoff guy but is hitting .220 against RHP’s this year, and Quentin will subtract AB’s from Jones/McGehee? And he will subtract defensively – nope, play the hand, keep your prospects, and keep building.

It’s not so much that Upton isn’t worth it. That’s just not the type of deal the Pirates need to be making.

Good veteran stick and knows how to win.

Who do you think would hang up first: Hanson, Polanco, Grossman and Cain for J. Upton? Would you give up that much? Am I over-valuing our guys?
