The message doesn't really say that the Pirates aren't shopping Correia anymore. It just says that it is hard to see Correia being shopped with the Pirates contending.
I agree with Morosi that Correia is a solid number five starter. Look around baseball at the fifth best starter in most rotations, and Correia's numbers don't look that bad -- even if you're like me and you only focus on his xFIP, rather than his ERA. However, Pirates fans have been spoiled with great pitching this year.
If Correia regressed to his xFIP numbers, and started putting up performances like a 4.77 ERA pitcher, there would probably be a call to replace him. That number may be good in comparison to what most number five starters are putting up around the league, but it isn't good in comparison to the upside that alternative options can bring the Pirates.
