make it incredibly difficult. Find a loophole, expect it to be closed relatively quickly. Figure out a way to make the system work for you, plan on a new rule being created to toss in a monkey wrench.
I’m making no supposition as to whether Mr. Wright the knuckleballer the Pirates just signed to a minor league deal actually helps the team or not this season, not yet.
There always seems to be a sense of finality to the final cuts in Spring Training. For some, it’s one more rejection in a career filled with them, for others the last time they’ll experience it.
Those moves aside the Pirates have until right after the World Series to make some moves and unless something very unforeseen happens they will lose someone they don’t want to lose.
