Why would Pittsburgh do this, is Lawton getting paid alot on his contract?

If the Cubs were smart they would have went after Pierre. Lawton? Come on Gerut is so much younger and has more potential. I picked the Cubs to win it all this year (BoSox did it). I just don't like this move at all.

Of course you do...anytime the Pirates trade with the Cubs we get hosed. :~(

Obviously this wasn't a seller's market as much as it was made out to be. That and the fact that Littlefield is a terrible dealer. He probably wanted Pie for Lawton, and now we get this. Just another bench player for any other team that becomes a starter for the Pirates...makes sense. :-t

I Like Gerut a lot, lets face it Pitt wasn't going anywhere anytime soon. When Gerut is healthy he's very good. Pirates make a big step toward the furture with this trade.

Do you think Lawton will bat leadoff?

He probably will, though I like Hairston at the position more, he has more speed and they bat about the same average.

I would think Hairston stays in CF, Lawton from what I've read is not very good defensively and doesn't have the great range necessary to play CF.

Yes I believe his contract was somewhere around 8million.

I don't think the Marlins were willing to trade Pierre. I didn't hear much at all about him being on the market, if he was I'm sure Hendry would have gone for him. I like Gerut, I defended him when we traded Dubois for him. But he's not healthy this year and the Cubs are trying to win this year. It gives them a guy with an OBP top 20 in the NL. He should score plenty of runs with Lee and Aramis behind him. I just don't see what there isn't to like about this deal.
