Today Pittsburgh Pirates GM Neal Huntington announced the free agent signing of Doug Mientkiewicz.
After years of DM being rumored, he finally is a Bucco. There is only one reason I dislike this signing...SPELLING HIS NAME.
This will add an experienced bat to the bench who has a very nice glove for late inning double switches and defensive substitutions.
Overall, this is a low risk signing since it is a minor league deal. It also strengthens a very weak bench.
