There will be, literally, no one left


A deal that would send John Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny from the Pirates to the Cubs is “just about done,” reports Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Chicago has been on the hunt for another reliable left-handed reliever and Grabow (3.65 ERA in 43 appearances) would be a good fit. No word yet on what Pittsburgh would acquire in the transaction. The deal would deplete the Pirates of left-handed relief pitching at the top of the organization, with Donnie Veal the only lefty reliever remaining on the big league club.
With Sanchez leaving last night and all the rest taking off before him, the Pirates will have almost no one on the team who will be associated with any of their past 16 years. Look for them to win the NL Central next year. Their jerseys will be adorned with a large and prominent middle finger with the number 17 in the middle (this will be their 17th consecutive losing season). On the back will be either Rinku or Dinesh. They will sell like hotcakes.
