Comments on: Joel Hanrahan News: Sunday Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system. Wed, 10 Sep 2014 21:38:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Lee Young Sun, 23 Dec 2012 18:12:01 +0000 Via tweet, Melancon said he hasn’t heard anything…fwiw.

I guess it is time to kick back, watch the Steelers and roast some chestnuts.


By: Andrew Smalley Sun, 23 Dec 2012 17:52:16 +0000 In reality, Melancon is just as confirmed as Sands/Pimentel. Until announced by either team, names are just names.

FWIW, Bowden (whose knowledge is sub-par at best) says that Melancon is indeed in the deal.

In any event, Sands/Pimentel/Melancon seems more than fair for Hanrahan – leaving aside the other part(s).
