Gordon traded to Mariners, at least on paper I thought this guy could have helped us. Lead off hitter with speed. Steals bases, high average and good defense. Move Harrison to third. It appears the Mariners were interested in the International money, don't know much about prospects they received. Just thought this guy could have been a big plus for us.

And I hear tell they are moving him to center field to keep Cano at second.

I read the same thing. Don't know if he ever has played there.

I think he played a handful of games in the minors in the OF but never at the majors.

I don’t think he really would have helped the Pirates. Getting on base to me isn’t the issue, it’s driving in runs. By trading for him and then moving Harrison to 3B you are eliminating your ability to add a run producer at a power position.
