Bucco Blog has a new podcast with a Winter Meetings update. Interesting points within:
The White Sox and the Pirates are the teams that "have the arms." GMs looking for pitching will go to the Sox for experienced guys and the Pirates for solid 0-3 guys.
Many are speculating that a Devil Rays/Pirates deal would fit well. The D-Rays are desperate for pitching, the Pirates would like a young slugger. How about Duke for Dukes?
GMs are targeted the following Pirates: Zach Duke, Tom Gorzelanny, and Mike Gonzalez. Will Dave Littlefield part with them?
Two first basemen who have been connected to the Bucs are Daric Barton and Casey Kotchman. Jake questions the Kotchman possibility – if he was over his mono, how come he didn’t play winter ball to prove it?
UPDATE: Reader Tom points out that Kotchman is indeed playing winter ball in Puerto Rico.
