Pinero for Wilson --> Rumors and Speculation
Over the past few days there has been some reports that a trade was looming in the form of Joel Pinero for Craig A Wilson of the pirates. I have read some reports on this and it is my personal belief that this is just in fact a rumor and is not something the mariners are interested in. Or so I hope and pray. Seriously what sense does this make for the Mariners. I can understand the pirate’s interest in Joel the pirates need pitching, but what role does Wilson play on the mariners? OF? Nah the only place to put him would be in place of Raul, and is he any better than Raul? No way. Well he can also play 1st............... but we have 55 million tied up there. Well a few years back Wilson was a catcher........Well we just invested some nice money into a catch and our future catcher is only a few years out. So are the Mariners thinking of trading there #2 starter for a bench guy? The trade just doesn’t make any sense to me so I am glad this is just a rumor lets hope and pray it stays that way.
