LaRoche Holds Key to LaRoche's Future

When looking at the Pirates projected 2009 opening day lineup, there are very few veterans on it. 

When looking at the Pirates farm system, there are very few prospects in it.

Therefore, the Pirates are very likely going to need to move a few more veterans for prospects if the young guys in that opening day lineup don't step up.

Freddy Sanchez, Jack Wilson and Adam LaRoche are the only "veteran" position players on the team who could get a "decent" return of prospects. The exchange of these players will be imminent if the young guys in our lineup don't produce.

Therefore, if Andy LaRoche and guys like him (aka Brandon Moss, Nyger Morgan) don't produce Adam Laroche and guys like him (aka Freddy and Jack) will have to be traded.

I wonder if Andy realizes that he holds the key to his brother's future with the team?
