Pirates trade Brad Lincoln to Blue Jays for Travis Snider

Well…this certainly came out of nowhere. Just after midnight on MLB’s deadline day, the Pirates sent Brad Lincoln to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for outfielder Travis Snider. “Who the heck is Travis Snider??” you ask? He’s a 24-year old outfielder that his hit for an OK .247/.305/.429 line in just over 900 PA’s over parts of five seasons. Yes, parts of five seasons...

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...

Blue Jays Trade Travis Snider to Pirates for Brad Lincoln

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...

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...

Daniel McCutchen to Join Pirates 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.

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...

Jays added to bullpen but couldn't acquire a starter

The Toronto Blue Jays couldn't make a big splash before the trade deadline. The best they could do was cause a couple of ripples when they traded outfielders Travis Snider and Eric Thames for relief pitchers Brad Lincoln and Steve Delabar. Back on July 20, they made a 10-player deal that brought them reliever Brandon Lyon and starter/reliever J.A. Happ from the Houston Astros...

Five Best Trade Deadline Trades

1.  Pirates acquire Travis Snider from Toronto for Brad Lincoln.  This one doesn't get a whole ton of play in the media because it's not as sexy as a lot of the other trades that went down and if it does it's always mentioned as a "trade of two failed prospects, both of whom were drafted in the first round of the 2006 draft.  That may be true, but that doesn&...
