Some highlights from the latest podcast at Bucco Blog.
As you know, the Pirates’ interest in Braves first baseman Adam LaRoche surfaced today from the winter meetings. But keep in mind that this rumor first originated November 20th at Bucco Blog. The situation remains the same: the Braves want Mike Gonzalez, and Dave Littlefield won’t do it.
Jake also considered today’s rumor that the Bucs would shop Jose Castillo to be nuts. Castillo is needed at second base.
And here’s the wildest one: Andrew McCutchen to the Marlins for Dontrelle Willis? Forget it.
Back to reality…sort of…the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says Littlefield is targeting Trot Nixon and Jeff Suppan. Don’t take those too seriously either.
