Just hours after Jack Wilson was shipped to Seattle, Freddy Sanchez was traded to the Giants.

In return, the Pirates received Tim Alderson, a right handed pitcher who was highly regarded within the Giants’ organization.

Word is now that Grabow and Gorzo could be dealt to the Cubs. 1 more day til the trade deadline.

This piece of news wasn’t too surprising. I’ll miss Jack Wilson at shortstop, but Management has made it pretty clear that season could be Wilson’s last with the Buccos.

The Pirates also sent Ian Snell to Seattle, but they picked up 5 guys in what seems to be a Grand Slam deal for the Bucs.

Here’s who’s coming to the Burgh.

First baseman Jeff Clement, #1 Mariner prospect in 2006 and 2008
Shortstop Ronny Cedeno, hopefully can fill the hole at SS.
Right-handed pitchers Aaron Pribanic, Brett Lorin and Nathan Adcock… all solid A pitchers.

Rumors are now circulating that the Giants may be interested in Sanchez. 2 days until the trade deadline!

Tonight in St. Louis, the National League goes for their first All Star Game win since 1996.

Freddy and Zach are reserves.

The rest of the Buccos are taking a few needed days off.

Who will represent the Bucs?

My vote is for Freddy Sanchez, but John Russell has been campaigning hard for Zach Duke. We’ll know within the hour.

Post Game Updates
Technically, the Pirates were going for a 4 game sweep against the New York Mets today (make up game). It was back and forth all day, and the Pirates lost a heartbreaker. After leading 5-0 after 3 innings, the Bucs allowed the Mets back into the game, and the Mets led 8-5 after 6. Down 8-6 in the bottom of the ninth, Freddy Sanchez singled and Adam LaRoche homered to the game as the PNC Park crowd exploded. With 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth, Robinzon Diaz and Ramon Vazquez singled, but Brandon Moss couldn’t knock in the game winner.

Matt Capps entered in the top of the 10th, and allowed a 2-out hit-by-pitch, stolen base, and single to give up the lead.

The Pirates’ top of the order couldn’t produce anything in the bottom of the 10th.

Today was the first time we’ve seen Jeff Salazar in a Pirates’ uniform. He was recalled after the Morgan/Hinske trades. He entered as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the 6th, and he flew out to right.

Post Game Updates:
Given the trades that took place today, I did not expect the Pirates to play well in tonight’s game, but all in all, this was probably one of the best games the Pirates played all season.

Ross Ohlendorf was fantastic, striking out 8 and allowing just 4 hits in 7 innings. Grabow and Capps sealed the deal.

Freddy Sanchez went 3-3 with an RBI.

On Fathers’ Day, the Colorado Rockies finished their 3 game sweep against the Bucs.

Paul Maholm got off to a rough start, giving up 5 runs in 5 innings. Jeff Karstens and Steven Jackson finshed the game well, but the Pirate bats couldn’t quite generate the necessary run support.

McCutchen went 2-5 with 2 runs and Sanchez went 2-4 with a run and 3 RBI, but the Pirates still dropped the series finale 5-4.

The Stanley Cup is coming to PNC Park today, and Bill Guerin is throwing out the first pitch.

STANLEY CUP

Post Game Updates
Tonight’s game was interesting. It was old-school night at PNC Park. This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the Pirates defeating the Tigers in the World Series. Everything at PNC Park was imitated to make it look more like 1909. Baggy uniforms, no mascots, and a plain looking scoreboard made for a unique night at the park.

Ross Ohlendorf pitched 6 nice innings to get the win in today’s rubber match. Grabow and Capps pitched well to close out the 8th and 9th.

Andrew McCutchen went 2-3 with 2 runs. Freddy Sanchez went 2-4 with 2 runs. Delwyn Young went 3-4 with a run.
