i would only think we would sign eckstein if we unloaded j wilson and needed a short-term until bixler or that other shortstop are ready to take over (or get as ready as they can get)
i agree that our farm system is crap, its kind of pittiful, but our top prospects def got to give us some hope. lincoln pitched pretty good his first year back from tommy john, i think he was mostly in AA or high A. hopefully Alvarez is ready quick we could use his bat, but of course i dont want him rush.
Pirates .500 or better in 2010!!!!!
