Frank Coonelly MLB.com Chat

Once again Pirates president Frank Coonelly chatted with fans on MLB.com.  His team owns a 12-14 record, fifth in the NL Central.  A few highlights from the chat:

  • Coonelly asked how close the Pirates were to signing Adam Dunn.  Coonelly replied, "we never got close to what he was seeking."  The implication is that the Pirates at least inquired, which is news to me.
  • Coonelly named the bullpen as an area that could warrant future moves.
  • The Pirates spent about $9.8MM on the draft last year, and they've got the fourth overall pick in 2009.  According to Coonelly, the Pirates will be "equally aggressive in the draft this year."  The Royals and Red Sox also spent around $10MM last year.
