What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?

Another note regarding this trade. A Olt centered package won't get the deal done. Read today that Arizona is not very interested or impressed by Olt.
@Fajita Probably just more posturing, of course they're interested in Olt everyone in baseball should be interested in a top 10 young talented power hitting 3rd base prospect.
They have no need for Olt because they have a solid 3B prospect in Matt Davidson (their overall #4 rated prospect) ready to go, and are set at 1B with Paul Goldschmidt and prospect Ryan Wheeler behind him. What they do need is a SS because their best SS prospect Chris Owings is still raw and probably 2 seasons away. This is why we still are a match for them trade-wise.
I almost think we get another team in need of a 3B'man involved (say PHI) with Olt on the table with that team landing Olt and chipping in a prospect to ARI in return and us getting an extra prospect from ARI.
I would think Andrus/Garcia+1 lower tier gets Upton/Bauer. I would still rather see Elvis traded for an ACE Price/Hernandez/Kershaw type Cost controlled for multiple years. Olt to Toronto for D'Arnaud. Take a run at Greinke to make LA over pay sign one of LaRoche/Cabrera/Napoli then call it an off season.
