PNC PARK – It was a quiet a deadline for the Pirates, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing for the club as it was a seller’s market and prices for impact talent were high.
Still, could the Pirates have made a minor trade to help their bench? Was that a missed opportunity or is there enough help in the minor league system? We’ll see. But every asset was believed to be over-priced due to market conditions.
Pirates GM Neal Huntington met with reporters at 5 p.m. today and said the club was willing to do something “stupid” to improve, just not anything “insane”
Apparently, the asking prices for impact talent were insane.
