DING DING DING… We have a winner! (for real this time)


At least the Pirates, as a whole, got a little prettier.

According to RotoWorld:

Pirates acquired RHP Nathan Adcock and three other minor-leaguers from the Mariners for RHP Ian Snell and SS Jack Wilson.

Adcock, a 6-foot-5 21-year-old, was 5-7 with a 5.29 ERA and a 71/54 K/BB ratio in 19 starts for Single-A High Desert. He’s obviously a long way from the majors and probably won’t ever make it as a starter.

Now I don’t know who the three other minor-leaguers are, but if Adcock is the centerpiece for the Pirates in this trade, they got scrizewed. Why would they get rid of a decent shortstop and a decent pitcher for a terrible pitcher (who may never even make it to the bigs) and three unknown (to me) prospects? The world may never know.

    Actually the main guy they got was Clement, a former #1 draft pick.
