Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a few new Pirates tidbits today.
- Jason Bay expressed displeasure with the Pirates’ lack of activity, but his comments were respectful. He hopes to stay with the Bucs and win. Bay says he "found a whole different level of being in shape" this winter, which bodes well for a bounceback.
- Kovacevic says Neal Huntington and Kevin Towers have been in touch this week regarding Xavier Nady but nothing is close. Towers admitted publicly that he was looking at Nady and Matt Murton.
- There’s been "little progress" on a multiyear deal for Matt Capps. The Pirates approached Capps earlier this month with three or four-year scenarios in mind.
