    Zach Stewart to the Pirates

    Just heard on the MLBTR.

    Sox will get PTBNL probably a scrap.  Youk basically got dumped for nothing... Horrible...

    For anyone keeping track, that's now Jose De La Torre (maybe a bullpen candidate next season?) and some Pirates PTBNL for about 3 months of Youkilis.

    A bad trade at the time, but we did save a little money and now have a couple long shot prospects.

    Making room for something it seems. Probably Napoli/Swisher?

    It was bound to happen. I'm still expecting a 2 or 3 for 1 deal soon.

    Sox are apparently looking for cash, not players.  A deal or two seems imminent.

    I assume it will be Ross first to sign with the Sox if this soon.  Napoli is meeting with the Rangers and Swisher might take more time to decide on his final destination.

    Re: Zach Stewart to the Pirates

    Youkilis was not a bad trade last year.  He had to go because upper level management certainly was not going to admit at that time (or at any time I guess) that Valentine was a terrible choice as manager.

    The fact that the Sox seemingly got no players back in the trade who are going to help in any year means nothing now.

    Was the CC signing harmless?

    A good signing for the Yankees.

    Re: Zach Stewart to the Pirates

    Youk was a declining oft injured player whos numbers proved that. What did you expect to get back for him, Gavin Floydd?

    Zach Stewert is now with his fourth theam. A former 1st round pick with stuff that doesnt translate past the AAA level. maybe if the Pirates put him in the pen they will get better results.

    Sox just making room on the roster.taking out the trash, so to speak...

    When Youk was traded we were still in the race. Some thought the choice had to be either/or:

    Youk or Middlebrooks, but it didn't have to be that way. As I argued at the time, Youk could have gotten quite a few PAs at 3B, 1B and DH. Maybe not enough to keep him happy, but enough to keep us better that we would have been with Lillibridge & Stewart.

    In hindsight, Youk could have played almost everyday. AGon got hury for a bit, Middlebrooks and Papi for much longer, and Youk ended up with 15 Hrs in 80 games played with the White Sox.

    In further hindsight, Youk would not have made any difference, so we did save a little cash, and we now have de la Torre & a PNL to show for Youk.

    Re: Zach Stewart to the Pirates

    Moon is entirely correct....the trade itself was senseless but the worst part of it was that it was 2011 all over again where the inmates were running the asylum....Ben shouldve told Youk he was expected to fulfill his contractual obligations and keep quiet and do whatever was expected of him....after this nonsese the wheels pretty much came off and the firesale began.....
