In the category of "Coop will fix him", I see the Pirates are ready to dump Ian Snell, who they owe $5.75 million total to thru 2012. He struck out 17 in a AAA start recently and won 14 games for the Pirates in 2006. Seems like a Gavin Floyd-type trade that could pay off if "Coop can fix him" What do others think?

Seeing as how the back end of our rotation is Contreras,Colon,and
Richard,i wouldn't mind finding out if Coop could get this guy fixed.
He's cheap obviously so he fits there.Worth a look-see.

I'd wait until after the season to acquire him.

If Coop can fix Jimmy Gobble, he can fix anyone.

This guy isn't a ****ty pitcher; he is 27 years old, strikes out a ton of guys, has had success on the minor and major league level, and is struggling this year. No injury history. Maybe just needs a change of scenery and new pitching coaches. Relatively cheap; possible low-risk, high reward pick up.

Snell has struggled both this season AND last season. Maybe not worth the trouble.

I think he is worth something. If nothing else put him in the bullpen as a LHP (I pretty sure he's LH:scratch:). But like someone else stated he's got high reward low risk for the money!

Yes he is a situational lefty. When you need to get out a AAAA lefty with a slider speed bat, he is your man.

Coop could fix him.

He cannot fix Daniel Cabrera.

Because we have a couple of former "****ty" pitchers throwing big innings for us now.

I agree.

Let me know when he fixes Gobble.

I read that Snell won't ever play for the Pirates again. In the minors he just threw 17k's. Any thoughts?

According to the MLB channel on sat radio, Snell asked the Pirates to send him down because of "negativity" in Pittsburgh, and he's saying things like (paraphrased), "I may be in the minors now but at least I'm happy."

Don't know if it's a confidence thing or he is just weak-minded. But he had a major league gig and he voluntarily gave it up.

That's not a good sign, but then again given how the franchise dumps its players, going from the Pirates to their AAA team might actually be a good thing.

If he came cheap I'd have no problem seeing if Coop can fix him.

Why has he struggled of late? Too many walks/loss of control? Or does he have a hard time getting through a lineup three times because hitters catch up to him?
