You would imagine they will get more in return for Wilson and Sanchez. I was surprised that LaRoche did not garner a higher level prospect (or at least one with a higher ceiling). Seems like a potential 4-5th starter and a backup utility IF for a productive second half hitter. Not bad but couldnt the Giants have entered the bidding?

They probably thought they couldn't get much in return for LaRoche, which I would agree with.

Guess the Giants didn't want to do Jonathan Sanchez for LaRoche.

Do Pitt fans really boo LaRoche every time he comes up to bat?

I haven't been watching their games lately but my friend just texted me saying "this trade will make a lot of Pirates fans happy" so that paints a pretty good picture. This is better than McLouth or Morgan being traded, and Wilson or Sanchez (unless they get really really good pieces back).

This is a good trade for the Sox.

LaRoche was in a $7M contract.

They were saving moolah and that's all.

As a sox fan I like it for them

Don't think it will do much for his fantasy value unless he has his usual hot 2nd half and someone misses some time

LOL - following the Pit-Mil game on mlb.tv and they said the dugout just got the official word

Im sure deal couldahve fallen apart before it was 100% official but come on they all must have heard and he wasnt playing and all

Some of those guys have to be pulling a twitter in the dugout right? :)

Yeah they got something for nothing pretty much considering how much LaRoche was sucking.

I'll again stress picking up Milledge.

He's currently not in the lineup for AAA Indianapolis' game tonight. :-? :-L
