Trades Trades Trades
The Pirates have been included in another trade, this one with the Cubs. We have shipped out John Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny, in exchange for right-handers Kevin Hart, and Jose Ascanio and a middle-infielder, Josh Harrison. Kevin Hart, 26, is a solid pitcher, so far in his 8 MLB starts this year he is 3-1 with a 2.60 ERA. He really knows how to pitch, but isn't an overpowering pitcher. Jose Ascanio, 24, can fill in as a Starter or Reliever, and he can throw some pitches, but his control isn't great. Lastly, Josh Harrison, 21, looks to be a solid hitter, with some speed. Kevin Hart will join the Pirates, Jose Ascanio will go to Indy, and Josh Harrison will go to Lynchburg. I will follow these three as well as some of the other aquired players. All in all this was a good trade, I'm starting to approve of Neal Huntington, but I won't like him till we fiinally become a winning team. Lets Go Bucs!
