Pirates Talk Nady, Swisher With Yankees

Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Pirates have had trade talks with the Yankees regarding outfielders Nick Swisher and Xavier Nady.

Kovacevic, however, goes on to say that there is "little cause to expect a deal involving either coming to Pittsburgh," noting that Swisher is due $22MM over the next three years and hit just .219 last season.  A Nady deal is even less likely because the Yankees will demand top young talent; and the Pirates should be in full rebuilding mode.
