Pirates promotions...

Postby hett2333 » Wed Jun 09, 2010 8:25 am

USA today reports Brad Lincoln and Jose Tabata will join the Pirates today. I'm curious what the cafe thinks of Tabata? Also, with Walker, Lincoln, and Tabata up, when can we expect Pedro Alvarez?

Wow! Tabata up already.

no power yet, but looks like he could steal some bases. Really surprised they'd call him up this soon.

Lincoln I think is overdue but where is Tabata going to play? I don't seem him as an upgrade over what they got.

Can't agree. Milledge is proving to be a bust while Jones isn't really the future (and besides fits better at first base). In addition, Tabata gives them a legitimate leadoff hitter - something the Bucs have fiddled around for much of the year.

Would Tabata get a shot right off the bat to leadoff over McCutchen? if so, would he carry more value than Andres Torres and Fred Lewis or is he in the same tier as those guys?

i'm reading that Garrett Jones is moving to first and Clement is getting sent down.

its going to be a whole new Pirates team in a week or three.

C. Ryan Doumit
1B Garrett Jones
2B Neil Walker
SS bleh
3B Pedro Alvarez
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Jose Tabata
OF bleh, bleh, bleh

Once Pearce returns, Jones might move back to the outfield and force bleh, bleh, bleh to the bench.

Boy, Strasburg is lucky he just missed this revamped lineup.

Tabata should be a good add in roto leagues. He has speed and should bat leadoff for the Bucs. He should also play everday in left field. Milledge will move to right and G Jones should play a lot of 1st base.

Ideally, you'd think they want their best hitter (McCutch) batting 3rd so if Jose doesn't seem to initially be overwhelmed, we'll see him lead-off either from the get go or in the near future.
