Interesting to see what happens to guys like Josh Harrison and Diego Moreno. I don’t see them being part of the future and am interested to see if Harrison does actually play everyday in Indy.

Someone like a James Shields, Scott Baker, Ricky Nolasco.

Think of the package the Cubs gave up for Garza…that’s what I would be thinking. Three or four prospects for one proven guy.

I could see a smaller type deal where the Pirates “kick the 40 man can down the road” by trading someone like a Brett Lorin for a Low A player who is still a few years away from consideration for the 40 man.

Shortstop? Minor league depth? Or Farrell, Alderson, Lorin types for another org’s lower prospects (sort of tit-for-tat). Just wondering.
