Pirates Notebook

Well, there's lots of interesting side stories going on in Bradenton, FL (spring training home of the Pittsburgh Pirates).

Ben Grieve got some time with the media to respond to the fact that Jose Canseco dedicated almost two pages of his book to explaining how Grieve was "exactly the type of player that should have used steroids."

Also, Matt Lawton is indeed a Pirate. He's their highest paid player at over $7 million for one year. He reported to spring training with a "chiseled, 5-foot-10, 190-pound frame." Lawton might be a good first half sleeper pick for your fantasy teams.

I still hate Lawton from when he came to the Mets, sucked, and got hurt back in 2001. He could be a decent leadoff guy although Jason Kendall had a pretty damn respectable OBP and average last year. I really doubt he'll make good on his promise to steal 35 bases (he's never come close) but when you're competing for 4th place in your division, who gives a shit, right?

The mets are the most exciting team in April.
