The Pirates will receive third baseman Andy LaRoche -- Adam's brother -- outfielder Brandon Moss, and right-handed pitchers Craig Hansen and Bryan Morris. LaRoche, Moss and Hansen will join the Pirates' 25-man roster for the game tomorrow in Chicago. Morris will be assigned to Class A Hickory.

To clear space on the 25-man roster, the Pirates optioned shortstop Brian Bixler to Class AAA Indianapolis and desiognated for assignment releiver Franquelis Osoria.

 

Does anybody know anything about the guys that the Pirates got?  Good trade for the Buccos?

Hansen is unfulfilled potential.  He may be good in a lower-pressure place like Pittsburgh.  Moss will be pretty decent.

I just don't see Manny in LA.  However, Torre is the perfect manager for him.  Bay is going to be great in Boston although the LA Angels look like a monster this year.  I went to a Phillies game where they spanked us bad.  That was before Tereitha (sp)?

As for the Bucco's, who knows?  Nothing has gone right for that franchise in 15 years.

Voo-I still believe that Jose Tabata is the best player you have in your entire system after this last trading flurry.  Of course, he could be the next Hanley Ramirez or the next Frank Taveres.  That's the beauty of baseball.

Andy LaRoache has some potential i am told a more consistent hitter than his brother Adam.  Maybe not the power of Adam.

 

Hansen was not popular in Boston and blew some leads in middle relief but is young and has an upside.

 

The Morris kid has potential I am told

 

Brandon Moss wasn't getting any playing time but not going to make Pittsurgh fans forget Jason Bay the way Bay made them forget Brian Giles when he was traded for him.

 

The Jose Tabatha kid has a lot of potential but is a head case from what i read.  the rest of the pitchers the Pirates got are middle relieviers or #5 starters taht will never help.
