This just in from MLB Trade Rumors
The Pirates are mulling a possible trade with the Athletics for lefty Craig Breslow and outfielder Josh Willingham, tweets Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Biertempfel believes Garrett Jones would probably be part of the package going to Oakland in such a deal.
Garrett Jones has racked up a whopping 3.4 WAR in his 356 big league appearances. If I'm not mistaken, that makes him below leage average. I just have no idea why we would want this below-avergish 30 year old 1B.
I didn't see much else interesting on the Pirates. Starling Marte at AA might be something, but I really know nothing about the Pirates system. Check out this link for the Piratestop 10 from their website.
Any other news on the Trade Deadline?
