Ron - Joe Randa, Jeromy Burnitz and Craig Wilson should never see the light of day as starters in Pittsburgh. They don't have a future beyond this season in Pittsburgh and they have more than capable replacements.
Freddy Sanchez, Nate McLouth, and Jose Bautista should be playing everyday, learning on the job, and gaining experience for the future, when it matters.
This season is lost when it comes to finishing with a winning record or making the playoffs but it doesn't have to be lost with developing your talent.
I think Randa is a solid veteran type that will accept his position as a role player behind Sanchez and take those pinch-hit at-bats as a positive way to help this team grow and win.
Can't say the same of Wilson and Burnitz. They're horrible, horrible in right-field. Strikeout way too much, leave too many runners on base, and not enough contact with their feeble HR totals.
And let me say it now, when Kip Wells has shown he's healthy and pitching well in the majors, the David Littlefield better get a solid major league talent in return. I don't care if its a young player already in the majors or a legit prospect in AAA or AA.
