The Pirates will listen to offers for Nate McLouth, but Neal Huntington says they aren't shopping him:
"No, we're not shopping Nate," Huntington said flatly. "Are we getting hit on a handful of our players by other clubs? But we're not actively looking to trade anyone, certainly not Nate McLouth. As clubs call, we'll listen. If there's a price they're willing to pay that makes sense, we'll have to act at some point in time. But Nate ... Nate's a guy we like a lot.
At this point, this could mean anything, or nothing. It may well just be posturing on the Pirates' part.
