    Re: Joel Hanrahan Traded to Pirates

    Well I would think that is a little bit better of a situation for him. Wonder what Cysball20's thoughts are...

    Re: Joel Hanrahan Traded to Pirates

    What the **** are the Pirates doing? Compared to some of the teams they've had, they actually had a decent squad this year.

    Re: Joel Hanrahan Traded to Pirates

    That's a strange trade between two teams that aren't going anywhere this year.

    Next Pirates trade - both LaRoche's for a time machine to go back to 1992, the last time they had a winning season!

    They've gotten rid of Jason Bay, Nate McLouth, and Xavier Nady since the deadline last season. Hell, they had just signed McLouth to a 3 year deal this spring, I think.

    Not sure what has been wrong with Hanrahan this year, but he was dominating as their (the Nats) closer at the end of last year. Milledge has been on the cusp of being a good major league for a couple seasons, but seems to be a bit of a head case.

    I doubt that many Pirates fans are happy with the Hanrahan/Burnett swap.

    That McLouth trade boggles my mind, Braves made off like bandits. They probably wouldn't of been able to re-sign Bay this year and Andy LaRoche was supposed to turn into a good 3B someday...

    Re: Joel Hanrahan Traded to Pirates

    What's funny is that Hinske may have cleared waviers 2 weeks ago meaning the Yankees could have had him for 800k instead of costing them 400k and 2 class A 24 year old players.
    Erickson, 24 in August, has 37 strikeouts and a 2.25 ERA in 44 innings of A ball this year. Fryer, who will turn 24 two days before Erickson does, has an OPS under .700 and 11 steals as a catcher and outfielder in A ball.
