for 2 minor league pitchers and a minor league hitter. For the Pirates i like the move i think they needed another arm now i think they need another bat. As most know i was the guy who liked the pirates in the offseason then changed my mind when they acquired Burnett. Look at this Pirates rotation

1. McDonald

2.Burnett

3. Rodriguez

4. Bedard

I know its not Madduz,Glavine,Smoltz and Avery but its still pretty good. For the Astros they've done what i said they needed to do in the offseason which was trade Rodriguez,Carlos Lee and Brett Myers and get ready for your move to the A.L. Your thoughts?

Correia and Rodriguez vie for the 5 slot, Bedard 3, Karstens slips into 4. A decent move, but they could have used a stick more.

 I agree hammer22, Correia is a legit back end to the rotation.

Nice write up Packers.

Either physically or mentally, possibly both, Correia is not built for August and September. Maybe the Pirates brain trust knows that.

Correia will slowly be pushed into the pen/long relief guy.

And the Buccos are still going to acquire another stick.

They have realized they have over achieved. In other words they have peaked.
