Pirates trade for utility man Connor Joe from Rockies

The Pirates have acquired outfielder Connor Joe from the Rockies in exchange for Minor League right-hander Nick Garcia, the team announced Sunday.

Joe slashed .238/.338/.359 with seven home runs and six steals in 111 games with Colorado last season. The 30-year-old played both corner outfield positions last season, spending 375 1/3 innings in left and 132 innings in right. He played 162 innings at first base as well.

If it hadn't been for Conor Joe
I'd been married long time ago

Well the next two questions are clearly answered: he came from Colorado and went to Pittsburgh.

Leaving just one more crucial question:

Don’t you hate pants?

His main skill is getting on-base...back in the day he would've been a good NL pinch-hitter a la Champ Summers or Kurt Bevilacqua but, alas, the DH has eradicated that role. His defense is, umm, adventuresome. I feel like if Pittsburgh just batted him #2 and Reynolds and Cruz got hot he could score 90 runs. But that won't happen...

I never heard of this "Connor Joe" before, but these two combined made me think of Henry Fonda as Frank in "Once Upon a Time in the West".

How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can’t even trust his own pants.
