Why all the need to pick up Doumit? Is it because you guys are in dynasty/keeper type leagues and are looking for prospects?
I was just wondering...I mean, I suppose the kid has talent, but the chances of him breaking into this lineup on an everyday basis are slim unless a couple people get hurt. We already switch Sanchez/Mack/Resto/T. Redman/Hill/Ward out so much as is (and people still don't get PT), and we have two catchers that catch specific pitchers.
He's not going to have a chance to get many at-bats, and presuming Wigginton comes back up at some point (my guess is when the Interleague series is over or possibly the ASB - depending on if he looks like he's "figured his problems out"), he goes right back down unless there is an injury or unless we cut someone (they should just release Ross).
If so, it's a classic wasted option by the Pirates front office.
