    Pirates acquire Akinori Iwamura from Rays

    I know there are a few Pirates fans on here. What are your thoughts? I'm very neutral on this deal. The Pirates didn't give up too much in Jesse Chavez. It just seems this deal goes against what management has said they are doing by adding a 30+ veteran rather than going (staying) young.

    Doesn't surprise me. They traded him away in the offseason of my Road to the Show: MLB 09 because of a up and coming second base stud...me.

    5 years of Chavez for one year of Iwamura on a team that needs bullpen help? I don't get it...

    Pretty much what I was thinking. Is Iwamura so much better than Young that we give away a young fireball arm? Puzzling.
