Red Sox foe Travis Snider is heading to the National League, where he won't be facing Boston quite as often. Snider is headed to Pittsburgh for a pennant race with the Pirates, who are looking to add some offense in support of superstar Andrew McCutcheon. In exchange, Toronto will receive 27-year-old pitcher Brad Lincoln. Lincoln is 4-2 with a 2.73 ERA out of the bullpen this year for the Buccos, while Snider has only appeared in nine major league games for the Jays in 2012.

Blue Jays, Pirates swap Snider for Lincoln

Last week, I mentioned that the Blue Jays had a very interesting trade chip in Travis Snider. Late tonight, Toronto cashed in that trade chip, sending Snider to Pittsburgh for Brad Lincoln.  On the surface, this doesn't seem like very good value for Snider. Lincoln's "just a reliever", but a good one, He's been a crucial part of Pittsburgh's bullpen...

The trade deadline is upon us

After swapping Brad Lincoln for Travis Snider last night, I'm guessing that Neal Huntington has fired most of his major trade deadline bullets. There was some thought amongst Pirate fans (not any actual rumors connected to this, just speculation after the Snider trade) last night that Huntington may now flip Starling Marte in a bigger deal since he has another young outfielder...

Snider acquired from Jays for Lincoln

The Pirates acquired outfielder Travis Snider from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for right-hander Brad Lincoln early Tuesday morning in advance of the 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline.

Blue Jays shore up bullpen with two trades

Neither trade was a blockbuster, but the Toronto Blue Jays made two deals Monday to bolster their pitching depth, an area that has been depleted by injuries this season. The cost was a couple of left-handed-hitting outfielders who have spent most of this season in the minors after receiving multiple chances to stick in the majors. Travis Snider, just back from Class AAA Las Vegas...

And now all that's left is to play the games

I'm going to talk about the trade deadline at greater length later tonight (probably much greater length), but for now let's focus on the game the Pirates have coming up in three hours against the Cubs. That is, after all, what the trade deadline is about, right?The good news is that my guess that Travis Snider wouldn't make it to Chicago in time for tonight's game...

Pirates Focused on Bullpen and Bench Help

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says that the Pittsburgh Pirates will be focusing on their bullpen and bench after they filled their outfield spot with Travis Snider last night. He points out that they didn’t deal Gerrit Cole or Jameson Taillon, which likely rules out options such as Shin-Soo Choo, and others who would require a top prospect today. One trend to note: the Pirates have...

Daniel McCutchen to Join Pirates Bullpen

According to a source, right-handed reliever Daniel McCutchen is expected to join Pittsburgh to replace Brad Lincoln’s spot in the bullpen. McCutchen posted a 3.40 ERA over 45.0 innings this season at Triple-A. Lincoln was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays last night in a deal that sent outfielder Travis Snider to the Pirates.
