Chris Snyder

Arizona Diamondbacks backup Catcher Chris Snyder is reportedly on his way to Pittsburgh pending the league's approval on the amount of money that Arizona is sending to the Pirates to help pay for Snyder's undeserving contract ($4.75 million this year, $5.75 million in 2011, $6.75 million club option for 2012 with a $750,000 buyout). Snyder is hitting .230 with 10 HR's. Nothing special about Snyder, the real hot topic is who are we sending out to the desert?

Apparently Charlie Morton was almost traded straight-up for Snyder earlier this season

I think it could be a washed-up AA or AAA guy like Brian Bixler, Brandon Jones, Brandon Moss, or Jean Machi.

It seems that Arizona is desperate to get rid of Snyder, and Pittsburgh seems desperate to no longer have Ryan Doumit as the catcher, maybe Doumit is being shipped to Arizona for Snyder and some prospects...(I highly doubt this scenario)

The most likely scenario is that the Pirates give Arizona a prospect or two from A ball that we'll never hear from again, Pittsburgh will get about $2 million from the D'Backs to help pay Snyder's contract and Doumit will be moved this off-season..

Bottom line though is that I hope we don't give anything that actually potentially could have value (Jeff Clement, Morton, Ronny Cedeno, Moss, Lastings Milledge, and any other players who fans have asked for their heads at times)
