A Cy Young pitcher for a guy that is 3 years away and one that cant pitch for crap in AAA. The Pirates obtained alot of talent and will be a better team because of it. Also does this mean Neil Walker gets called up to replace Sanchez?
Owens has had a fine season for WV but seems to be under the radar - no one really talks about him. This will get him a promotion to Lynchburg next year, and if he does the same there, how could nobody NOT talk about him?

Yes, the Indians did get hosed in that deal for Cliff Lee. You mean they couldn't get any more than that for him? Even Neal Huntington would have done better than that. Sheesh!

Walker probably isn't going to get a call-up any time soon - he has been a major disappointment. They're going to call up Lastings Milledge today to take Sanchez's roster spot and Delwyn Young will get the bulk of the work at 2B. Milledge will split time with Brandon Moss in RF and hopefully he wins the job outright.
