    Xavier Nady removed from 2nd Inning

    With no apparent injury, it looks like he might have been traded.

    He would look great in the Reds outfield.

    Unfortunatly a solid pickup by the Yankees. The Rays really need to do something or we're all in store for yet another New York-Boston love-fest from now till the end of the season

    If you want to see the 3 players' bios of what the Pirates got for Nady, here they are:

    The Pirates also got right-handers Ross Ohlendorf in the deal.

    He was the key to the Randy Johnson deal. Hard throwing righty.

    Still, that was not a very good return for the Pirates for two of the most sought after mlb players this deadline.

    I think it shows why Jocketty might be looking at Street and Sherrill, since the market is so low for sellers right now. Maybe he thinks he can pick up some good talent below market value.

    No sure fire top prospects there. Pirates and the Nats have set the market rather low.

    As per MLB Traderumors, the Yanks are now interested in Dunn. How about Dunn and one of our catchers for Nady and Hughes/Kennedy?

    Re: Xavier Nady removed from 2nd Inning

    According to the New York Post, the Pirates will be getting Daniel McCutchen and Jeff Karstens along with Jose Tabata and Ross Ohlendorf from the Yankees for Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte.
    It was widely reported last night (including by the Post itself) that George Kontos and Phil Coke were in the deal in place of McCutchen and Karstens. This is clearly better for the Pirates. McCutchen is arguably the Yankees' best remaining pitching prospect, though he's not a big upside guy and he doesn't rank with Phil Hughes or Ian Kennedy. Karstens isn't much more than middle relief fodder, but neither was Coke.

    Re: Xavier Nady removed from 2nd Inning

    Did anyone realize that the Pirates have scored the 6th most runs in MLB? Who knew?
    But, you could argue that McLouth, Nady, and Bay was the best 1-2-3 outfield in baseball.

    Nady - .333 avg. 13 HR's 57 RBI's, .919 OPS
    McLouth - .277 avg. 21 HR's 70 RBI's, .884 OPS
    Bay - .289 avg. 22 HR's, 60 RBI's, .920 OPS

    Very impressive

    Pirates fans have to be about to throw themselves off a cliff haha. This trade will set them back another 5 years, and welcome them back to the cellar.

    Actually, it looks like Matsui could be out for the season, Melky Cabrera has been a disappointment and Abreu inconsistent. I'd say they very much need Nady.

    As far as the Dunn rumors... I imagine those were only legitimate before the Nady trade. I doubt now the Yankees have any use for Dunn.

    It is better in the way that acquiring Majewski is better than acquiring Coffey. Yeah, he 's better, but neither one makes an impact for the Pirates.

    I now understand why Jocketty is hanging on to his players. I wouldn't want any of the players the Pirates got for Dunn, and Marte was kinda thrown in, which says something of the value of relief pitchers.
