    I don't know, to me Adam Dunn is just a big Texas country boy, who, even though does whiff alot, tears the ball up, naturally.

    Sosa, OTOH, is a juiced up, bat corking cheater that, since being exposed for what he is, hasn't done crap for himself.

    A wee bit, but they've also come up with Reggie Sanders, Kenny Lofton, Matt Stairs and John Vander Wal using that system.

    As long as they don't spend big or get tied down to a lengthy contract I don't see a problem with trying to eke some offense out of guys on their downside. It's not like the Pirates have young OFs that have been blocked by these guys.

    Pittsburgh should spend a little money fishing for some offense. They need it. Though they might get as much offense by taking a rider on Eli Marrero as they would from Sosa.

    Their new big name free agent is none other than Burnitz.

    Ha! Thank goodness cause I was afraid the Reds would sign Burnitz to further acquire every baseball player who's game I hate - Dave Williams, Josh Hancock, Womack, Aurilla, Randa, Burnitz.

    Thanks Pirates for taking two of those guys off the market!

    Unlike Sanders, Lofton, Stairs, and Vander Wal, Sosa would be taking the place of either Chris Duffy or Craig Wilson in the Pirates OF. Wilson is a .360+ OBP RH power hitter, and Duffy is a true CF and leadoff hitter. Both are better than Sammy Sosa at this point in their careers.
