Well as usual, not much to report as far as the Bucs offseason so far. Any rumors aren't likely real anyway, so why bother with most of them.
Here is what has happened so far:
•Acquired/Re-signed: Justin Thomas, Akinori Iwamura, Chris Jakubauskas, Wilfredo Ledezma, Vinnie Chulk, Bobby Crosby, John Raynor, Javier Lopez , Jack Taschner, Brian Burress, Neal Cotts, Tyler Yates
•Lost: Luis Cruz, Chris Bootcheck, Jesse Chavez, Eric Hacker, Robinzon Diaz, Phil Dumatrait, Matt Capps
-Recently departed Matt Capps said recently that the difference between his new employer (Nats) and his old one, was that the Pirates ownership had no commitment to winning. Good for you Matt and truer words have never been spoken.
- Everyone still hate the Jay Bay trade? look at that contact he just signed and then honestly tell me he would have stayed. next question is that is Bay really a $60 mil kinda player?
-Did you happen to see Adam laroche turned down a 2yr/$17mil offer from the Giants? Aparrantly he wants a 3yr/$30mil deal. Are you kidding me? Don't worry though, some idiotic GM will give it to him.
