So I am sure I am not the first person to see this but what the HELL are they thinking? Apparently the Pirates, as desperate and lame as ever, decided to sign two young arms from India! India is not what is so shocking though.
These two guys were contestants on a reality TV show called "The Million Dollar Arm". The requirements: throw strikes at 85 mph and up. No experience necessary, just bring the heat. Oddly enough, neither of them WON the competition...the Pirates just liked what they saw...I think.
Can you see the job listing now? Hey, maybe that is next...classifieds I don't know, seems horribly desperate to me. All I can say is I would be so pissed if I were a Pirates fan. Then again, I would probably be used to it by now.
