Right around now is the time of the year when trades and free agency ideas start to spark for teams, as well as bloggers. With the holiday looming, I imagine the Pirates' FO is taking the holiday and a few days around it off, so things will probably be quiet for now.
But, some of us bloggers here are always brainstorming about free agents, and trades, but one transaction that is not talked about as much is the waiver wire.
I think that the waiver wire is a great place to address some needs, and/or to just fill some holes, and get organizational players. And occasionally the waiver wire starts a trade.
So I am just making this thread to keep track of players on the waiver wire, I will keep track of most of that, and I am making this so we can discuss some of the players on the waiver wire who the bucs could, or should, claim.
I will occasionally update the post with notable DFA's and waiver wire claims.
But, this thread isn't limited to just waiver wire. This can be used for any notable signings and trades.
UPDATE 9:37 P.M : The Twins have Ricky Nolasco for 4/49. Hmm... wonder how NH feels about not offering QO to A.J.
UPDATE 12-3 7:56- I'm a little late on this but the Bucs signed former Yanks catcher Chris Stewart. And, Kyle McPherson , Michael McKenry and Garrett Jones have all elected and became Free Agents.
