The Pirates just picked up Gaby Sanchez from the Marlins so your whole Garret Jones to 1B and Snider as a full-time OF thing might not be as certain as you seem to think.

He's not good enough to be a RF, should be LF

Apparently (from Pirates fans) he will never play LF.

Maybe in a year he will be a 4th OF or an all-star, who knows.

I still think the guy is a star....if i read one more person write "he needed a change of scenery" .......that is the biggest misconception, the only thing he NEEDS are AT BATS in the majors.

You're really on a roll today. Please don't make this into a REDSOX2011/Felix Doubront scenario where the entire board is rooting against a player just because of one annoying person who overhypes the heck out of said player. Plus, I respect Ooosh so much that I really don't want to have to root against her favourite (Canadian spelling) player.

That's not a tape recorder, it's a harmonica.

The only thing that is certain is that you are a troll and are adding nothing to the conversation.

Gaby is nothing more than a bench player.

What I have read so far is that people are confused why snider is batting 2nd, won't last....though they do want to break up the lefties.

With the huge LF in PNC Park, Snider will not play LF. Starling Marte will roam around that field and take away a lot of hits that Snider would never dream of getting to. My understanding of the kid is that he has a pretty good arm, not nearly as good as Marte, so he profiles best in RF.

Sanchez will be a platoon guy with Jones at 1B, at least initially. If he can rebound to 2010/2011 form after getting out of that circus in Miami, he very well could take over the full time job there. That would force Jones into a bench roll which is probably what he more suited for.

4-0 Pirates top 1,Walker grand slam

Snider 1-1 run, although it is vs the gas-can Casey Coleman starting in place of traded Dempster.

Great choice getting MLB.tv

I got it for the first time this year and can't tell you how glad I am that I get to watch every Blue Jays game I want. I couldn't bring myself to watch the debacle that was Cubs games earlier this year, so I needed to find a new team to watch. Sorry about the Snider trade...I agree they should've looked to move others instead.

Hey now... You can leave the Steelers and Pens alone... Well you can pick on the Steelers if you want. Also no more fair weather fans are needed in Pittsburgh! j/k j/k

Snider had one at bat (his last) when he didn't get the runner in from 3rd with no outs. A walk and a single is a nice start for his new team.
