John Perrotto of Inside Pittsburgh Sports reports "indications" that the Pirates are willing to trade Ian Snell and says the Rockies are becoming their most likely trade parter. Multiple people in the team clubhouse appeared convinced that Snell was about to be traded yesterday.
Snell publicly questioned manager John Russell's strategy this weekend. Back in 2006, Colorado manager Jim Tracy gave Snell his first major league rotation spot. Tracy's Rockies are now just 2.5 games out of the Wild Card race thanks to an 11 game win streak.
