Trade Rumors

Pirates websites are currently flooded with rumors - emanating, as far as I can tell, from one blog - suggesting that the Pirates are currently completing a trade with the New York Mets. The trade reportedly involves former Pirate property Jeff Keppinger. I am currently unable to find any independent verification for this whatsoever, and I don't know why the Pirates would be interested in Keppinger unless they're going to trade Jack Wilson soon, so you may not want to take this rumor very seriously right now. Still, I thought I should mention it, since I've now seen it in several places.
