MLB Trade Rumors: Jason Kubel To Pirates?

Some flotsam regarding the upcoming MLB Trade Deadline: Rob Biertempfel writes that the Pirates want Twins outfielder Jason Kubel, while Jon Paul Morosi says that the two teams are not in serious discussions about him. So, you know, whatever! I’ll say this – 99.9 percent of what appears on Twitter is stuff you don’t really need to know, but at least you only have to go to one website to get it!

Anyway, Kubel is a poor defensive player, but unlike a lot of the players to whom the Pirates have been connected recently, he can really hit, and would immediately be a large upgrade to the Pirates’ offense. Unfortunately, I’m inclined to believe Morosi’s account – he would probably be pretty expensive in a trade, and I doubt the Pirates will want to give up good prospects, particularly after they’ve tailed off here in the past couple weeks.
