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


Meh I would keep an eye on him unless it is a deeper league. What was he doing at AAA?

1:09pm: Danny Knobler of CBS Sports reports that the Pirates are sending cash to the Red Sox to contribute to the remainder of the $7.05MM LaRoche makes this year. They also sent cash to the Yankees in the Eric Hinske deal.

Damn those Pirates throwing all that money around. How's the rest of the league supposed to compete?

Since the trade and in the Pit MiLB system:
.356 9R 2HR 9RBI 10BB 9K 3SB in 59 AB.

In AAA, he's hitting .400 (14 for 35).

Those are good numbers but he's already proven that he can hit at AAA and MLB (to a certain extent).

Gammons' insight:

This deal has been on the table for three weeks, and after Boston lost its fourth straight Tuesday and declined to trade Clay Buchholz for Victor Martinez, the Red Sox took Adam LaRoche.

The Red Sox will work LaRoche, Mike Lowell and David Ortiz in the 1B, DH and 3B spots, with Kevin Youkilis moving back and forth between first and third.

Boston's team OPS has declined every month, and in the last four years, LaRoche's second-half OPS is .938.

Anyone else besides me see this as a good spot for the Giants to nab Nick Johnson cheap? I mean when the Giants/Nats talk they will say that the Pirates got such and such for LaRoche and they are comparable players.
