Eagle: Bucs Wouldn't Trade Gonzalez for LaRoche

According to two sources, the Pirates have recently approached the Atlanta Braves about acquiring first baseman Adam LaRoche, who would certainly fill the Bucs' needs for a power bat from the left side of the plate...

The Pirates balked, however, when Atlanta asked for closer Mike Gonzalez in return for LaRoche.

UPDATE: This is confirmed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.


Ok, let's play fantasy GM. What do you do with the Pirates' bullpen? What trades do you make? Who's in your bullpen come opening day? Be realistic.
