Let him rehab in Indy/Altoona. If he progresses well, he gets called up to the PBC at some point and contributes.

If the Bucs could sign him for something in that neighborhood, that wouldn’t be a bad risk, but I don’t think that deal gets it done.

He is not an AL only player.

Even with below average defense, Soriano should exceed that value playing 4-5 days a week.

It’s a moot point though, so I’m not going to argue it. I was just surprised more than anything, that the Yanks got a 20-30 HR threat in a supposedly “extreme sellers market”, for $6.8M and low level bullpen arm. I doubt he would have ever been happy in Pittsburgh though, so its probably all for the best anyway.

This guys best days are behind him. He seriously will not live up to the hype he is receiving right now. Especially if a team plans to throw him right into the fire of a pennant chase. He’s worth a NRI next March and that’s about it

Besides, why waste high pressure situations on him when we have an opportunity to grow our young players with experience there and then?

I doubt that Wilson will become a Pirate, but if he does, Cutch immediately ceases to be the face of the Pirates. Blackbeard could light fuses in his facial hair!
