Snyder in, Doumit out.

Postby wrveres » Sat Jul 31, 2010 4:37 am

We really need a Pirates Fail thread.

The problem with that being, there are no Pirates fans. Besides, it's not right to pick on the Pirates. They haven't finished above .500 since before some of you were born. That's painful enough. Not one winning season since Bonds left. Their fans know they won't be competing from season to season.

Its not like Mets fans who get all uppity every winter and start thinking they have hope.

:-)

The Pirates, arguably baseballs worst franchise, have the catcher position all locked up for the next few years. props to them.

the D-backs have agreed to a trade that will send Chris Snyder to Pittsburgh. The trade is pending approval by the commissioner's office because money is changing hands.

Snyder is under contract for $5.75 million next year and has a club option worth $6.75 million for 2012. There is a $750,000 buyout attached. That means that if the Pirates hold on to both Snyder and current starter Ryan Doumit next year, Pittsburgh would be paying $10.85 million to its catching tandem.

If the Pirates want to move forward with Snyder as their everyday backstop, Pittsburgh could look to trade Doumit by passing him through waivers in August or doing so during the winter. The club could might also toy with the idea of using Doumit at another position. He's played some outfield and first base in the Majors.

Doumit, like Snyder, also has a club option for 2012.

This one could go either way in my opinion, depending on the prospects dealt.
It's fairly obvious that this is a sell-low salary dump by the D'Backs, so I'm leaning towards another DiPoto FAIL. Maybe Arizona need their own thread. :-?

The trade is pending approval by the commissioner's office because money is changing hands ..
They changed this rule a couple of years back, but has anybody ever heard of a trade that wasn't approved by the commish with regards to approving money in trades. Heck Selig is getting ready to approve the Astros sending 5 million to the Yankees of all teams, oh and they get to include their Prized 1B too .. what a crock ..

Me thinks, its time to change MLB's tax status.

When the A's tried to sell off all their good players in '77, and the Red Sox botched A-Rod trade in 2003.

Wow the Arizona "brains trust" are smoking some serious crack.............

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/07/pirates-dbacks-have-discussed-snyder-trade.html

9:31am: The D'Backs will receive Bobby Crosby and Ryan Church in the deal, tweets Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona.


9:42am: The D'Backs will also receive reliever D.J. Carrasco, reports MLB.com's Steve Gilbert.


Oh hang on........

9:55am: The Pirates will also receive a minor leaguer in the deal, reports MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch.


So in conclusion.....

OUT: Chris Snyder, decent catcher with pop

IN: Bobby Crosby, OPS .595. Alleged cry baby.
IN: Ryan Church, OPS .552.
IN: D.J Carasco
IN: Mysterious minor leaguer (probably lottery ticket)

This would have been an awesome haul for Arizona if it was still 2004 :-b

i believe the minor leaguer is going to Pittsburgh, making it even worse for Arizona. I am enjoying this ...

I'm a semi-Pirates fan because they have nobody on their side. As long as Detroit is not playing them, I'm cheering for them.

Good, I wasn't the only one thinking it. Finally we can get 5-7 games out of this guy with so much potential. ;-D
