The Pirates have signed Dan Kolb to a minor-league deal. Obviously, there's no real reason to be too critical of a minor-league deal, but Kolb's really bad, and I can see the Pirates being tempted to put him on the major-league team just because he was a closer for Milwaukee and Atlanta.
I've come down with some kind of virus and I don't have a computer at home - I'm at school now only because I had some emails I absolutely had to send. I don't plan on doing anything the rest of today or tomorrow except drinking orange juice and watching Six Feet Under, so I probably won't update until Tuesday. See you then.
