Pirates Trade Rumors - Rosenthal: Aramis Ramirez 'Adamant' About No-Trade 10-5 Provision

With the Pirates in need of a bigger bat at third base, many have suggested the Cubs' Aramis Ramirez would be a good fit if the Bucs could snag him in a trade. That, however, looks increasingly like a long shot as Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal tweets.

Sources: Cubs' A. Ramirez on Angels' wish list, but Ramirez still adamant that he will not waive his no-trade clause for any club

If Ramirez isn't interested in heading to Los Angeles, there's little reason to believe he'd be any more interested in joining the light hitting Pittsburgh lineup. The Bucs are closer in their National League Central race (0.5 games back) than the Angles are in their American League West race (4.0 games back) but the guess here is Ramirez is  worried about more than getting to the postseason. It looks like for now, at least, the Bucs are going to have to go in a different direction for a solution at third.

Given Ramirez's potential price tag, that's probably not such a bad thing, either.
