Veteran outfielder Chris Dickerson has signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates, according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

Dickerson, who’ll be 32 years old in April, hit .238 with four homers and a .666 OPS in 56 games for the Orioles last season and is a career .262 hitter with a .745 OPS in 314 games as a big leaguer.

He’ll try to win a spot on Pittsburgh’s bench, but may end up starting the season at Triple-A.

    Typical Neil Huntington dumpster dive. Throw everything cheap at the wall and hope something sticks. It’s only worked once so far (last season), hopefully he lucks out again.

    There has been much talk about how much the pirates have lost and not made up for it in the off season. I guess anything could be spun in any direction. I guess N. H. has it differently. Maybe he looks at team that thru April til August was a top five team. maybe he’s looking at the late season injury of Starling Marte, not the late season addition of Byrd. obviously he knows more of the situation with A.j. than the media,who prefer to speculate. Than there is the First base, which the media has as whole. Hmm might be correct I would worry but we did pretty well last year with it be a whole. Morneu was a bust Jones will be missed in the dug out, as I point out that sanchez is still young has a glove and was a former all-star.

    I think the Pirates will be fine. They are never ones to go out and get a big time free agent. They have tons of talent in the minors ready to come up. Baseball America just rated the Pirates minor league system number 1 in baseball. The Pirates are going to be good for a long time.

    The Pirates want to win…. in a sense. They LOVE winning just as long as it doesn’t affect the bottom line. Don’t ever kid yourselves. This team is constructed to make money… not to compete for championships.
