-P- The Bucs are still asking the moon for Craig Wilson:
I love Craig, but that's ridiculous. Who could that first base or corner-outfield prospect possibly be? Well, the Angels have Kendry Morales and Casey Kotchman.

So if the Pirates have made a serious offer (maybe they haven't; maybe they're not actually interested in dealing with the Angels and their awesome farm system), it's probably Morales or Kotchman (who's injured) plus a major-league-ready® starter for two months of Wilson, and oh-by-the-way you're picking up the tab for Wilson's contract. That's just absurd.
