Bob Nutting? Why continue to trot out Snider and Jones if their is an option out their that can really help this team. Additionally their are only 25 major league slots so all of these Minor League players are not going to make it to Pittsburgh. Their is nothing wrong with getting a proven RF who can help the team. I doubt we have to trade much if we are willing to accept the contract. Though Cumpton was OK in his two starts I see him as nothing more then a swing man or a 5th starter on an average team. Heck for us he is the 10th starter.

You can get just as much or almost as much for a lot less cash. Save your millions to pay your own players, or maybe a rental pitcher if they end up needing one.

Gomez and Locke aren’t available today, so they need Cumpton for a spot start.
