Regarding Freddy and any potential trade. I think that the Pirates are going to shy away from moving him right after a poor season.

The did not want to trade Bay after a bad season, and the decision was solid. They did not move Nady after his best season up to that point, feeling that he had more value than he had showed, and they were right.

For Sanchez, if he comes out of spring training healthy, and hits like he has for the majority of his career (.300/.335/.420), his trade value will be much higher than it is right now.


Ordinarily I would agree. But Freddy's outstanding 2nd half would go a long way towards underscoring his value and characterizing his first half as an injury prompted fluke, unlike Bay's '07 where he got worse as the season went on. When a guy hits close to .350 after the Break I dont know that its seen as your traditional off season.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
