Pirates Trade Ronny Paulino to Phillies

They get Jason Jaramillo in return. Jaramillo is another catcher and there isn't much upside there--he played this year at 25 and hasn't really hit much yet at AAA. He's supposed to be excellent defensively, so he's a better fit as a backup catcher to Ryan Doumit than Paulino is. Really, though, there's not much to be said about this except that it's about getting something in return for a guy who was a complete pain.
