Re: Pirates interested in Ankiel & Blalock?
Ankiel would be a decent pickup. If they were trading for the Blalock from 2003-06, then yeah, do it. But he has not been the same player since he got hurt 2 years ago. I'd have to nix that.
But what is with the Pirates suddenly talking about bringing in serviceable major-league talent and spending money? And talking to Scott Boras clients to boot! Shouldn't they be going after curtain-jerkers like Ramon Vazquez instead? It's more their speed.
