Bucs just might sport Wood

Pirates, Other Teams Pursuing Brandon Wood

via @MLBTradeRumors

My thoughts are this...he's never seen significant ABs over a full season in the MLB.  He's got about 450 PAs stretched out over 5 seasons.  We gave Andy Laroche a shot so we're the de facto destination for this kid, no?  Cedeno certainly isn't blocking anyone.  My favorite thing about the move is it shows underachievers like Cedeno that, if they don't pull their head out of their orifice, they won't get playing time because the FO isn't afraid to get creative and bring other options in.  

Maybe Hurdle can shorten up his swing and iron a few kinks out?  Even if his bat responds, we're likely to have a historically bad defensive infield if he sees significant playing time ... Left to right, Pedro, Wood, Walker, Overbay with some Jones?  OMG.

Also, shameless plug ... I've started freelancing for an interesting (at least to me) project... a documentary film/website re: the bank bailouts -  www.usabailout.com ... my first article is here if you'd like to give it a glance.

It's political so use caution.  Charlie - if mentioning outside work is a no-no, I apologize and will gladly edit the post.  Not sure of the standards there.
