People are talking about the Pirates dealing Maholm to get a first basemen, but I'd much rather see him extended. I think we can field a decent lineup with help from AAA and returns from injuries rather than trading our biggest strength in our Pitching staff or any of the prospects they've been trying to collect.
Without making a trade our lineup can be Tabata, Presley, Walker, Cutch, Alvarez, Doumit, D'arnud, and Jones. That's really not bad at all with some pretty good bench players out of Paul, Harrison, and Cedeno.
Weakest spot is Jones at first. Only trade I'd make is to find someone at first, and I don't think dealing Maholm is worth any upgrade we can get over Jones. Especially is Hague keeps killing the ball at AAA, he could provide another internal solution.
