    I'm not a fan of it either as I don't really get the idea behind it but as far as value goes it seems to be a reasonable return.

    I wouldn't think so but who really knows. I've seen some speculation (not rumors or anything) that maybe this was done in part to free up a roster spot for Brandon Beachy. Beachy has supposedly...

    I would assume Lambo but Tabata is a decent safety net.

    Who knows though perhaps they bring in a free agent to handle the job. Nate Schierholtz is still available and the Pirates were linked to...

    This was probably a pretty fair trade then as Pirates fans don't like it either. As for Snider his defense is fine in a corner nothing special but nothing to worry about. In an emergency he could...

    Sticky: Pirates Offseason II: Roster Decisions

    NH says the PTBNL is similar to Tarpley so that makes this a decent return. Tarpley was rated the Os 9th best prospect by BP and 12th by John Sickles.

    The other player is a PTBNL. Don't get this deal.

    Sticky: Pirates Offseason II: Roster Decisions

    Looks like the deal is about done. Stephen Tarpley is reportedly one of the prospects coming to the Pirates. He looks intriguing but I don't get this at all.

    Sticky: Pirates Offseason II: Roster Decisions

    The Pirates are reportedly close to a deal with the Orioles in a Travis Snider trade. Sounds like it might be for two minor leaguers and I really don't like the sound of that.

    Pretty much my thoughts I actually have him 2nd on the PA team at 2B and he is in the running for one of the bench jobs. Him and Groat forms quite a formidable 2nd string up the middle.

    Sticky: I figured you had Walker.

    Most likely. I had Mazeroski for his defense but I just saw he was born in Wheeling, so there goes that lol. Admittedly, I'm not too familiar with Pirates history[/QUOTE]

    I figured you had Walker.

    Indeed it does and with some excellent depth. The SS is team captain and on the international side that honor belongs to the RF.

    Sticky: Pirates Offseason II: Roster Decisions

    Just thinking of what else the Pirates might do I would really like to see them try to sign Jesse Crain. He hasn't pitched in a year and a half so I'm thinking he will end up signing a minor league...

    Jake Elmore was DFA'd to make room for Kang. He has a pretty decent looking bat for a reserve middle infielder so hopefully he clears waivers and sticks around.

    This is tough to speculate. He has two years of control left and is only going to cost about 18-20 million for those years.

    More agreements ...

    Watson ... 1.75 M
    Snider ... 2.1 M
    Rodriguez ... 1.9 M

    That leaves us with only Worley and Alvarez that we haven't heard anything about yet.

    Sounds like Walker and the team didn't reach a deal so a hearing seems very likely there. That still leaves 5 guys though ... Alvarez, Rodriguez, Snider, Worley and Watson.
