    The Pittsburgh Pirates have claimed Phil Dumatrait off waivers.

    As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

    I actually see him as more of a Candy Sierra clone myself.

    Do you think he will equal the performance of Mel Behney?

    No one can perform that well! Sets your sights on the more realistic goal of Keith Brown.

    Great riposte

    Do you mean Keith Brown or Scott Brown?

    Do you think Dumatrait should hire Keefe Cato or Sheldon Burnside as his pitching coach?
    And what about the role of Dumatriat as a second inning set up man to lead to the strong third inning work of Bill Kelso

    He was Boston's #1 pick. Bowden got him for Scott Williamson in 2003...
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    I mean Keith Brown, who pitched 25 brilliant games for the Reds between 1988 and 1992.

    I believe that the best pitching coach for Dumatrait would be Tony Menendez, or Troy Afenir (If Dave Duncan can be a pitching coach, then so can Afenir).

    It was very lugubrious that you did not comment on the pheenopm Scottie Brown, however Tony Menendez with a lifetime record of 1-0 would serve as a great mentor as would Jim Dickson, Curt Lyons and Steve Cooke other legendary undefeated Red hurlers.

    if Dumatrait was a girl, he'd be named "Shelly"
