So what do you think of the potential Hanrahan for Capuano trade rumors?
I like the Russell Martin pick-up, but so far this off season seems to be more of one mans trash is our treasure type stuff.
Well...if you subscribe to the WAR value placement, it's about the best you can do for Hanny. Everybody, myself included, would like to see a bat or a high prospect come back, but it most likely won't happen.
Hanny's speed is down, his k's are down, his WHiP is up and his conditioning is lacking. He's still a top 5-7 closer, but I think he's in the twilight of his closing career.
The Buccos really have two options with him...trade him now for a Capuano-type or hold him until July and hope he performs well. It's a tough decision. Twist my arm, you make the trade now.

They should have traded him last summer IMHO. And for the sake of accuracy I said the same thing then.
I agree, while it is great to think just maybe the Buc's can get to the playoffs but we all knew it would happen. The Pirates have a horrible history of not moving guys when their value is at its peak and that was another example of it.
I agree completely, but just think how much everyone would have freaked out if they had traded Hanrahan. They did the same thing with Maholm. There was a huge debate about trading him, they didnt, and then got nothing for him after the season was over.
Tampa bay has an eye on winning now and in the future. The pirates need to do the same.
