Pittsburgh Post Gazette Writer Ron Cook On The Orioles Addition Of Pedro Alvarez

Ron Cook is a writer for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette who covers the Pirates and Steelers.

Ron joined Ed and Steve to talk about the Orioles acquisition of Pedro Alvarez and get a Steelers update ahead of NFL Free Agency.

Ron started by talking about what kind of player the Orioles are getting in Alvarez saying "well I think you got a good player as long as you don't give him a glove and put him in the field...early in his career he was fine at third base but then for some reason he just couldn't make the throw across the infield." Ron also talked about any weaknesses in Alvarez's game saying "he can't hit lefties, you got yourselves a good hitter...I won't say he's a good player but he's a good hitter."

Ron also talked about the Orioles acquisition of Vance Worley a pitcher who spent time in the Pirates organization saying "to me he;s just another pitcher nothing special."

Ron finished up talking about the different holes that the Steelers will have to fill in free agency and how the team will as usual not be big time spenders and will probably just keep their own.
