DateQuestionAnswer
2008-06-02 12:00:00 (link to chat)Would a Adam Lind and David Purcey for Bay deal workout well for both teams? Wouldn't Lind project as a lefthanded Bay with a little less power in his prime?
(Taylor from Toronto)
I think the Pirates would want some higher-end guys than Lind and Purcey. I don't think Lind is in Bay's class and Purcey doesn't excite me. (John Perrotto)
