Really look at the talent.. who would the Yankees or Red Socks or Cardinals want from this team?? Maybe 3 or 4 playes as part time fillin players.. NO PITCHING=NOT WINNING.. SIMPLE..

He is probably one of the best relievers in our system. And as tempting as it is to want to get a great return back in a trade from hanrahan, as a team that doesnt have a great offense and always finds themselves in one run or tied games i think it would be much more beneficial to the team if he stays

I think as the winter goes on they could sign a Broxton or Franky Cordero type cheap on a 1 yr deal to fill in until the deadline then flip them for more youth. Hopefully someone Meek Morris Leroux Veras even Resop is ready to take the job by then. I agree with Tim Morris could be the closer for the next 4-5 years.

Remember when there was a competition between Meek and Hanrahan? I remember there were some complaints when the Pirates picked Hanrahan early in Spring Training, without letting the competition play out.

I am totally shocked that the Pirates are not going to go after a player with talent that would cost them more than their payroll for 2012.

Meek would not even make the club if I were running the team. Try trading him and see what he brings? I would much rather see them bring a guy like Dotel in, he can pitch the 8th inning and could be used to close if all the other experiments fail, but as usual, if Hanrahan goes, we are back to experimenting for a closer, experimenting usually equates to losing. They could not even find someone to pitch the 8th inning last year, think where they would have been if Hanrahan wouldn’t have been around!

I am not saying I would never trade Hanrahan, but someone would have to blow me away before I would let him go.

Not much..
