Never been to this site before but MLBTR had it linked. I gave it a click and found this gem in the comments: "Anonymous said... It seems like the pirates dont have a real plan. They just go out & sign below ave MLB players. Remember joe Randa, derek bell, even the sps from last year. Barnes is in the same mold. He is a piece you add finalize a playoff caliber team not move you from 70 wins to 75 wins. They need to evaluate minor league talent better on other teams and sign a few better free agents to trade at the deadline. They should try the oakland approach. What they have been doing for the pastn19 years is not working. If you don't change the input you get the same output."
