Pirates Rumors: Bay, Wilson, Nady, Marte

Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette sums up the Pirates' trade deadline strategy in today's article.

  • Jason Bay and Jack Wilson are not being shopped.  The Bucs like having both under contract beyond this year.  It sounds like Neal Huntington would have to be bowled over to move either guy.
  • Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte are the players most likely to go.  Nady is under team control for next year, while Marte's $6MM option will be declined.  The Pirates are thinking they can decline Marte's option, offer him arbitration, and let him decline to accept.  Then they might be able to net two respectable draft picks for '09, assuming he's a Type A.  So Nady is a more likely trade candidate than Marte.
