Young Ready To Join Rangers

No, not Kevin Young, or Walter Young. It's Chris Young, one of the players Dave Littlefield dealt for Matt Herges, who never played a game for the Pirates. Young, 25, is a very tall pitcher who the Pirates paid over a million bucks to sign. Since the Bucs traded him, he pitched in the Montreal organization for a year and was traded again, this time to Texas in the Einar Diaz deal.

Since joining Class AAA Oklahoma, Young has been dazzling, posting a 1.48 ERA with 34 Ks and 9 walks in 30.1 innings. He's got his fastball up to 94, according to Buck Showalter, and his breaking ball has improved. (Young has used fastballs almost exclusively at various points in his minor-league career.)

MLB.com also reports that Young may start on Tuesday for the Rangers. He'd look awfully good in a Nashville Sounds - or Pittsburgh Pirates - uniform right now. But at least the Pirates got... well, actually, they didn't get anything in return for him.

Win big, lose small. Oliver Perez and Jason Bay are going to cover a lot of minor mistakes for a long time.

That doesn't mean it's right. While the Pirates might (or might not) offset some mistakes with Perez and Bay, they won't offset them all at the rate they're going, and every mistake makes their talent base worse.
