Pirates[or my] Wishlist




As of today, the pirates stand 2 games back out of first place.  This is with injuries to both the pitching rotation[our best starter last year and our all star set up man] and to the lineup[Doumit, Snyder, Pearce, Alvarez, Tabata, Jarimillo, and maybe even Neil Walker and/or Windows XP.] Luckily, the pirates have a good GM who has brought in tremendous depth[maybe even too much.] But they cant keep this up forever, can they? So without further ado, I present to you the pirates  my wishlist.

 

Carlos Marmol- This guy has lights out stuff. Although it may cost a pretty good prospect, Tony Sanchez?, it is worth it in my mind. He is only making 3.2 million this year, but is pretty expenive in 2012, 7 million, and in 2013, 9.8 million. Now obviously this is just a wishlist and I dont expect the pirates or the cubs to be willing to make a deal, but it is still awesome to think about what our bullpen would be with him as the set up guy/occasional closer.

Billy Butler- Although he could be had for less than Marmol, it would require major league talent in return[Paul Maholm.] I honestly think that he could be had for a package of Maholm/Resop or probably just Hanrahan but that would be stupid. Butler has Garret Jones power, but he plays a much better defense at first and sports a higher batting average. He will be making 8 million in each of the next 3 years and is making 3 million this year.

Edinson Voluez- He has been very inconsistent and with the Reds starting pitching depth, a couple bad starts and he could find himself back in AAA. The reason why I want this guy so bad is he has tremendous stuff. Maybe he can work with Ray, help him with the mechanics, etc. He does have ace stuff, its just a metter of him cutting down on the walks. He will not become eligible to become a free agent untill 2014. He is making 1.6 million this year.
