Gorkys and Strickland or another pitcher should have been enough.

Then that the Pirates even wanted Kaminska in the first place and then decided he had little value is strange too.

Trying to say the Bucs had to include more to get Kaminska. Anyway I think Gabby was not coming back to Marlins for 2013 as he was going to cost too much for them and they seemed willing to keep him in minors for rest of last year.

And I believe if you were to remove only one of the two Strickland would have been the one I would have went for. But the upside with Robinson vs Inge is obvious. The biggest problem I have is not even as much keeping Inge, but keeping him after adding McDonald.

Obviously Robinson for Inge is a whole different story

You know I actually think this may have been one of the worst moves I have seen. After adding McDonald who actually makes sense, what do we need Inge for then. What value does he have to this team. Its great he played through pain. The restructure the agreement that says we have to add him by April 15th or he can elect free agency. Make him prove he deserves a spot. I know neither player may have amounted to much but they still made more sense then keeping Inge.

Strickland seemed like an odd add to the 40-man anyway, so I didn’t think he would be picked up by anyone when they DFA’d him. He was set for relief work in AA, so no big loss, they have plenty of similar value players to him in AA/AAA
