Duke Delwyn Laroche designated

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/11/pirates-designate-duke-laroche-young.html

 

Duke, LaRoche, and Delwyn all designated.  I thought LaRoche was our utility infielder and I figured Duke had at least a fighting chance of being retained if there was any doubt the Bucs wouldn't be able to sign a legitimate SP option.  Guess they're confident they'll get somebody to sign because I doubt NH will lean on Owens, etc for the bulk of next year.  

 

Already, MLBTR readers are speculating on Duke as  a 5th SP option or long-reliever.  Theo Epstein is all over him.  We'll see what happens.  

 

Think the PBCBlog crowd will be happy about this one?  Sale the team...Nutting is cheap.
