Pirates Checking on Available Hitting

Buster Olney tweeted tonight that the Pittsburgh Pirates are looking for available hitting, but that so far they haven’t found many sellers.

We heard earlier this week that the Pirates were looking at corner infielders, specifically Chase Headley, Bryan LaHair, and Kevin Youkilis. Olney tweeted that rival executives don’t expect Youkilis to be dealt right now, as he has no trade value.

John Perrotto reported that the Pirates have been pursuing Headley, and have made San Diego’s third baseman their top priority.

Whenever their pitching has a bad game, they have virtually no chance of winning. Their hitting is too poor to overcome. This is not the mark of a winning team. The hitting simply must be improved. Corner outfielders hitting under .250 with no extra base power are also not the mark of a winning team.

Theyve gotta do something to shake up the big club a bit. they were utterly dominated by the Os this past series

Perhaps some more starting pitching is in order. Bedard got destroyed.
