    With that kind of K ratio and Pirates oh so famous ineptness at knowing who has a future I truly believe this guy is someone they should defintly take a flier on.

    I think he's worth a shot. He misses bats, so as long as he doesn't miss the plate too much, he should be pretty good.

    Good catch, Topcat. Sharpless was very good in the minors. Nice K/9, good K/BB.

    Looks like he's got a ton of upside.

    Low risk, high reward, sounds like our kinda guy.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I was suprised to see the Bucs DFA'ed Sharpless, I definatly wouldn't mind taking a flier on him.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Yeah, but if we picked him up we might have to cut Buck Coates.
