Don't care if they trade either Capps or Grabow, honestly.
I've heard they may use Delwyn Young at 2B.

If you guys have accounts on ESPN.com I highly suggest you go on the Pirates Message Board.

No thanks. I'm upset with management and the direction of the team like everyone else, but I'd rather not read more whining and bellyaching from other Pirates fans, which I'm sure is what's going on there.

You talking about the trade to SF?

i read an article saying that the Giants arent interested in signing a Left Handed First Baseman. It has been confirmed that the Giants have had a scout following the Pirates taking a close look at Freddy, maybe something really is in the works.

I wouldnt be terribly mad at that trade, Alderson looks like a good young prospect (younger than me by 3 months i think it was) and Burriss is someone who can step in and play right now and is still young. As long as he isnt in the rotation i wouldnt have a problem having jonathan sanchez, his control isnt good, he is tied for fourth in BB allowed.

Here is the trade

Adam LaRoche and Freddy Sanchez for

Jonathan Sanchez (SP, RP), Tim Alderson (SP), Emmanuel Burriss (2B), Alex Hinshaw (RP)

Not a bad trade, but I doubt it would happen.

I think the fact that LaRoche is left handed kills the deal on its own.

I know it was a GM ago but that A-Ram trade still haunts me.

That has to go down as one of the worst trades in all of professional sports.

Dave Littlefield is now a scout for the Cubs which leaves me thinking was he working for the Cubs long before he was a scout?

Littlefield is probably the only GM I have ever seen trade his best player to a division rival. I do find it a little suspect though.

Apparently the Pirates are trying real hard to trade Sanchez.

Top teams interested are Twins, Giants, Rockies..........
