Phillies make solid buy low acquisition with Brad Lincoln

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Phillies did something that blew my mind: they acquired a player that may improve their team a good bit in 2014, and gave up next to nothing to get him. Ruben Amaro's club acquired reliever Brad Lincoln from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for backup catcher Erik Kratz and Rob Rasmussen, who didn't throw a pitcher as a member of the Phillies...

Goodbye Kratz, Hello Lincoln

With the addition of new backup catcher Wil Nieves, Amaro wasted no time in swapping the unneeded Erik Kratz for relief help.  That "help" comes in the form of ex-Pirate, Brad Lincoln. Lincoln was with the Toronto Blue Jays, but now becomes the newest Phucco (Phillies + Bucco = Phucco, for those of you not in the know).  He is a 28 year old righty that owns a 4.66 ERA...

Phillies Acquire RH Lincoln from Toronto for Kratz

Somehow Yankees Trade Chad Qualls to the Pirates...and Get Someone Back

Wikipedia Commons  (No way do I want to re-live him in a Phillies Uniform) Interesting - the Pirates replaced Brad Lincoln by acquiring Chad Qualls from the Yankees, reports Joel Sherman of the New York Post. They got infielder Casey McGehee in return.  With Gaby Sanchez joining the Pirates he was expendable. I sure wish the Phillies had gotten that return.

Brad Lincoln – Yankee Hunter

By now you’ve read that the Pirates are allowing Brad Lincoln to explore the wonders of Yonge Street and Casa Loma in Toronto in exchange for giving Travis Snider the opportunity to eat at Primanti’s and gape in awe at Fallingwater. My snap reaction is that I would have loved this trade in 2010 for the Pirates.  Taking away the context, the Pirates traded a reliever for a young...

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...

First Pitch: Why I Like the Travis Snider Trade

The Pirates acquired outfielder Travis Snider tonight for reliever Brad Lincoln. My immediate reaction was that I loved the move. Snider is a young outfielder who profiles as a left-handed power hitter. He’s been hitting well this year in Triple-A, and has been solid since his call up to the majors a few weeks ago. Lincoln has been dominant as a reliever this year, but the potential...

Did Alex Anthopolous Just Make a Bad Trade?

There’s been a lot to like about Alex Anthopolous’ work so far as the Toronto Blue Jays General Manager. On Monday night, he traded Travis Snider, a 24-year-old outfielder dripping with power, for Brad Lincoln, a 27-year-old maybe-reliever maybe-starter in the midst of a career season in the Pirates bullpen. Twitter was incredulous and awarded Neal Huntington the win immediately...

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...

On Friday, the Tigers bumbled their way to a loss. Yesterday afternoon, Brad Lincoln pitched maybe the best start of his young career and Andrew McCutchen came up big when the Pirates needed him to and the Pirates pulled out a second win against the Tigers. That's honestly one more win than I expected from the Pirates in this series, so a sweep would be gravy.Given that the pitching...
