From Gammons (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/gammons/story?id=1754774) (take it for what it is worth):

Kris Benson has thrown well thus far, and the Pirates, who would like to clear his $6.2 million salary, say they have had inquiries about Benson from several teams.

A world of talent, but there's still the health questions. I don't know if the Pirates want the team they trade him to to take on all of his salary, but I wonder if KW has interest.

I can't imagine they'd expect too much for him given his recent health - or distinct lack of. Why not trade them something we don't need? Take a shot at him?

Maybe they'll just give him to us. Why not? They gave away the rest of their team to the scrubs last year. That franchise is a joke.

If I'm Kenny, I stay away from starting pitchers from the Pirates from now on.

Maybe we can get them to give us back Kip Wells, too?

Benson is from Clemson, and his teammate was Koch. Maybe that might help Koch, and I love Clemson kids...best college baseball players and team baby!

Being a pitching aficionado, I have always liked Kris Benson. A couple years ago I understand that he posed in Penthouse with his spouse, but I never saw the pictures :o:

Anyway he has his own website, I won't link it to be on the safe side but it is clean. It has pix of his wife too, who also has her own site which is linked there. :D:

Kris' site is actually pretty cool, gives health and spring training updates as well as pix from his surgery. Good player site.

Personally I hope he returns to good health. The guy was tough as nails when healthy. I'd love to see him in a Sox uni, healthy of course.

Well fellas. I thought the thing to which I was referring was more widely known.

He was interviewed by playboy a few years ago and he was really open about his sex life and how he and his wife like to "experiment" in the bedroom."
