Oh, it's all so simple

Karen Price of the Tribune-Review informed worried Pirates fans that:

General manager Neal Huntington addressed his team’s struggling offense before the game, and said that any help they get is going to have to come from within — at least for now.

"If you look at history over the last five years, there aren’t trades made in April," he said. "There are very, very few trades of substance made in May and there are few trades of substance made in June, so our solutions are going to have to come internally unless we’re willing to be less than intelligent and dramatically overpay. That’s just the way it is.

"We’re certainly looking externally, but the extra wild card has made it that much more of a challenge. There are fewer sellers out there, and we’re going to have to be creative."

To solve the team's run production problem, the Pirates need only to call up one of the many high-ceiling position player prospects they've drafted over the over the last few years. Here's the list of these players:

Josh Bell

Well, I suppose Huntington might draft a hitter....
