This Casey injury might actually be bad in a backwards kinda way. If Casey really does return in a couple months Craig could be stuck on the bench the rest of the year. I think if Casey hadn't been injured that Craig would have ended up on another team - hopefully with a FT job.

Anyway, maybe this is a way they can showcase Craig for a trade when Casey returns. Hopefully it won't be after teams have already filled their needs.

I like Craig, but no way would I cut guys like Preston or Swisher for him. He's still a Pirate :-)

In case you haven't noticed, the Pirates have one of the top offenses in the NL so far this year.

I haven't noticed and do not expect it to continue.

3 run blast for Wilson, I will enjoy him in my utility slot while it lasts. ;-D

I'm digging Wilson in my utility spot the last week, plus too. He and Gibbons platoon nicely for me personally. Fantasy aside, I hope he gets a shot at playing somewhere full time throughout, think the guy deserves the shot. We'll see...
