Rob Rossi notes in his notebook today that the Pirates have told three teams that Matt Capps is off limits. This is why we suck, because we place a FREAKING RELIEVER as off limits. Gotta make sure our bullpen is strong to hold those leads that our invisible offense and disappointing pitching staff get so often.

Meanwhile in Dejan's notebook the Pirates stunning lack of speed on the basepaths is discussed, as well as the Astros' not so serious interest in Damaso Marte and the Pirates intense desire to replace their least favorite player with a clone, in this case Kevin Mench. At the end is a mention of Chris Duffy in AAA, and his 10 stolen bases in 13 attempts in 18 games, which is pretty damn impressive.
