Doumit, Snyder trade rumors; Pearce starting tonight

There has been some discussion of the Pirates possibly trading Doumit or Snyder, specifically to the Red Sox.

Earlier this week:

The Pirates received calls on catcher Ryan Doumit this winter but the talks eventually petered out.  The Red Sox could be in the market for a backstop, but one talent evaluator says that Doumit isn't a great receiver and the club is better off sticking with Jarrod Saltalamacchia.  Pittsburgh’s Chris Snyder, who is off to a hot start, could also be available.

Although, the asking price appears to be kind of high:

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Pirates are not eager to trade Chris Snyder.
Specifically, their demands may be higher than other teams will be willing to pay. For example, the Red Sox like the 30-year-old backstop -- along with free agent Bengie Molina and Nationals catcher Ivan Rodriguez -- but they are unlikely to part with a significant prospect in a trade, as Snyder is owed $5.75 million for the rest of the season.

It would be interesting to see what deal we could put together by shipping either of the catchers. Both are owed a large chunk of our salary as well. We could probably get a decent pitching prospect.
