Is Jack Wilson Paying Attention?

Jack Wilson on the Tony Plush trade.

"The bottom line is, even if this trade does work out, it's not going to matter to 80 percent of the people in here," Wilson said. "And over the years, these trades haven't worked. Show me the ones that have worked."

I guess Jack doesn't care that the players acquired in these trades are most of his teammates in the starting lineup.

Adam LaRoche

January 19, 2007: Traded by the Atlanta Braves with Jamie Romak (minors) to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Mike Gonzalez and Brent Lillibridge.

Freddy Sanchez

July 31, 2003: Traded by the Boston Red Sox with Mike Gonzalez and cash to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Brandon Lyon, Anastacio Martinez and Jeff Suppan.

Andy LaRoche and Brandon Moss

July 31, 2008: 3-team trade. Andy Laroche was traded by the Los Angeles Dodgers with Bryan Morris (minors) to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Boston Red Sox sent Manny Ramirez to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Boston Red Sox sent Craig Hansen and Brandon Moss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pittsburgh Pirates sent Jason Bay to the Boston Red Sox.

Jason Jaramillo

December 10, 2008: Traded by the Philadelphia Phillies to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Ronny Paulino

Delwyn Young

April 15, 2009: Traded by the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Pittsburgh Pirates for two Players To Be Named Later

Lastings Milledge

June 30, 2009: Traded by the Washington Nationals with Joel Hanrahan to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Nyjer Morgan and Sean Burnett. (Milledge isn't a starter now, but he probably will be soon.)

Andrew McCutchen is the only starter who wasn't acquired via trade. So isn't Jack Wilson basically saying that most of his teammates are losers? And if Jack Wilson thinks that it sucks when the Pirates bring a young player in a trade, remember:
