    Where's he gonna play?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Not the Pirate I wanted at all. I don't get it.

    Wasn't LaRoche saying a while ago that he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh for the rest of his career?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Good question. Precursor to another deal perhaps?

    Interesting. I expected him to wind up in SF. I'm guessing Lowell isn't going to make a full comeback.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    But he's healthy at the moment isn't he?

    So the Pirates are the new Red Sox farm club.

    Can Freddy Sanchez play SS?

    Ironically, Sanchez came to the Pirates from the Red Sox (for Jeff Suppan.)

    I am guessing Lowell's hip must be much worse than we have been told.

    Re: Adam LaRoche traded to the Red Sox

    Sanchez is the Pirate I wanted(back). Lowell just came off the DL a few days ago, but he still looks pretty immobile. If they're replacing him, I'd much prefer someone to play 3B because Youkilis hasn't looked that great over there, either, but he is better than Lowell and LaRoche is a decent upgrade over Kotsay offensively.

    Still no word on what they traded for LaRoche.

    That's the death nail. Once you say you want to be a Pirate for life they immediatley trade you away.
