Today's bad idea: Trade for Erik Bedard

14

Ran across this article on "quick fixes" for all 30 MLB teams. Some are legitimate, some are questionable at best. Their suggestion for the Pirates is to bolster the rotation by trading for Erik Bedard. While I, like many scouts and GMs, am intrigued by Bedard's ceiling, his injury history and recent mediocre performance makes me say...no, no, no, no, no thank you. We're certainly not giving up anybody of value this season, and given what the Mariners gave up to get him, I'm guessing they won't let him go easy. I'll pass.

Saw this over at MLBTR. I'm surprised nobody's mentioned it over here, more for it's total insanity. I guess since Duke's hurt they had to fill their "awful former Pirate" quota. Good for the old Kipper for at least having someone be aware that he at one point played baseball. I kinda forgot about him completely.

Pirates Cut Dinesh Patel

I know this is a relatively small-potatoes piece of news, but by way of MLBTR, the Pirates cut Dinesh Patel. There's no mention of Rinku Singh's status with the team, however, so he should be back...
