Would picking up Joe Mauer be a wise investment? We have no C prospects outside of Sanchez who continually does something stupid to stunt his progress. It would be a huge upgrade to the Buccos offense and a shot in the arm for a wildcard push. This is the kind of move that could prove the Pirates are in it to win it or does it reek of desperation. It is a large contract, but at some point the Pirates have to spend some money to close the talent gap with the other teams in the division. Thoughts.
