Sheehan on Doumit and Paulino

Joe Sheehan (the question is from me):

Charlie (San Diego): What do you think about the Pirates thinking about trying Ryan Doumit at first base? Do you think Ronny Paulino will be a good big-league starter behind the plate?

Joe Sheehan: I think we know the Pirates have the ability to take a good-hitting catching prospect and screw him up royally. It might be their signature skill.

Well, that or signing old players to block young ones.

Paulino's a catch-and-throw guy, a backup. Doumit's a starter, a six-win guy down the road if he plays. Good luck with that.
