Roger Kieschnick RF. Bats like crazy in minors. Can't keep it up with the big guys. Needs a long hard look? How about Pegs - Francisco? We need some heavy hitters tan pronto como sea posible.
Not sure how you say that Kieschnick cant keep up with the big guys when he has never played in the majors. His biggest problem has been health as he has had back problems the past 2 years. If not for the injuries I would say he is a better prospect than Peguero. I wasnt impressed all that much with Peguero other than his speed.
Sabean could have gone after Michael Morse, Hairston, or Gomes but he must like Torres/Blanco for some unknown reason.
