Pirates Sell High on Travis Snider

Maximizing value is the key to success for any resource starved low revenue major league baseball team. Pittsburgh Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington has a fairly strong track record when it comes to buying low on talent.

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports in Baltimore had an update on the Travis Snider trade today, saying that he’s hearing the player to be named later won’t be determined until Spring Training.

First Pitch: Did the Pirates Make a Mistake Trading Snider, Or Are They Selling High?

I found myself going back and forth between two thoughts when thinking about the Travis Snider trade this evening. The first thought involved thinking about the possibility that Snider could be the next Brandon Moss. The Pirates got Moss in the Jason Bay deal, hoping that his power potential would translate over to the majors. It never did, although he did have a huge season with...
