    Pirates nearly upset the NL:C for years

    EDIT: This apparently was a false report.

    While the Pirates ultimately stood pat on trade deadline day (apart from a post-deadline deal for minor-leaguer Robert Andino), the club made a real push to acquire slugger Giancarlo Stanton from the Marlins, reports Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

    Except for apparently that was a false report (according to Clark Spencer):

    Source: the #Marlins received many offers for Giancarlo Stanton, but NOT ONE from the Pittsburgh Pirates

    My thoughts:

    1.) Im glad this didn't happen for 2013's sake.
    2.) I think any team, at this point in time, would greatly overpay for Stanton. I think there are other players who could provide as valuable as Stanton for a lesser investment.
    3.) Im glad this didn't happen for 2013's sake.
