Pirates Close To Acquiring Ryan Ludwick
By Tim Dierkes [July 31 at 2:24pm CST]

The Pirates are close to acquiring right fielder Ryan Ludwick from the Padres, tweets Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. Ludwick, a right-handed hitter, could at least fill the role the Pirates envisioned when they signed Matt Diaz in the offseason.

Ludwick, 33, is hitting .238/.301/.373 and has $2.2MM left on his contract. The Bucs added veteran first baseman Derrek Lee yesterday.

Luddy IS now a Pirate. And after that sweep, they really need him. I'm surprised Walt didn't get him.

Does anyone get the feeling that the Cards, Brewers & Pirates are trying so hard to win this divison because they know the Reds are going to put a stangle hold on it for the next 5 years?
