Pirates say signing Mientkiewicz now unlikely
Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said today he is unlikely to bring back popular utilityman Doug Mientkiewicz because of the signing today of free-agent outfielder Eric Hinske
Hinske can play all four of the positions -- first base, third base, left field, right field -- that Mientkiewicz played for the Pirates last season.
So what. With all the SUCK on that team, they can use GOOD players.
