He can play center. Either get someone in Rule 5 that has a lot of talent like Hood or go for someone who could be relief pitcher like Meek.

I would be vary wary about even considering Robinson as possible platoon bat at first. It is possible, but he could be a Matt Hague too.

Other options for first are needed and that makes Jones valuable to this team.

A lot of people are going to be surprised when they see how little the Pirates get for Hanrahan. First of all if a team gives up a 5mil player for Hanrahan, that amounts to 12 mil in value that they paid for Hanrahan, is he worth 12Mil to anyone? IMO, I would just keep Hanrahan and only move him if the Pirates are out of it in the middle of the year.
The best option is to take Capuano (or someone similiar) even up for him IMO.

I liked him, but I am not sure he is MLB ready yet.

Will she be doing any reporting from there?
