    Default Pirates showing interest in Durchersher

    An article is up on MLB Trade Rumors that the Pirates are showing interest in Justin Durchersher. I personally think this would be a good gamble for them to take. It's being reported by DK. Here's a link to the story.

    He's definitely an interesting player. He's had very good years both as a starter and in the bullpen and may be willing to take either role to ease back from his situation last year. He's a guy who can come at a reasonable guaranteed price, with incentives built in if he lives up to his potential, which is to be a very good front end of the rotation starter.

    I assume several teams are interested (Rotoworld says the Red Sox are), so the Pirates would likely have to give a bigger guaranteed value to try to lure him in.

    Hip, Elbow and Depression. None of those sound like things I would touch with a 10 foot pole, especially depression. Imagine coming to the Pirates I can't see that being a remedy for depression. Hip and elbow at the same time for a guy in his 30's YEESH... Sounds like someone Benny would like. Guy is half busted up

    I just think that with the current ability to help athletes heal...there are some good bargain players who may have been hurt who are inexpensive and if they go back to old form they could be great deals. Its not completely unheard of now is it? LOL.

    I do like they looking at him over the other rumor....Jamey Wright

    Report: Pirates interested in Wright

    By Dejan Kovacevic | 4:36 p.m. Tuesday

    The Kansas City Star is reporting this afternoon that the Pirates and Royals are interested in free-agent reliever Jamey Wright.

    This is not independently confirmed.

    Wright, who will be 36 next month, had a 4.33 ERA in 65 appearances for the Royals last season, with 60 strikeouts and 44 walks. He made $1.4 million.

    I dont think Wright has ever been a closer or even attempted that has he? He's only been a reliever for 3 years and never had a save. *shrug* I dunno.

    Capps isn't a world beater...never said that. I hope he's gone.

    And, yes, Wright sucks and I wouldn't want him anywhere near this team.
