Pirates Trying To Trade For Catcher

Jenifer Langosch tweets that the Pirates are trying to trade for a catcher but other teams are asking the world, trying to take advantage of the Pirates' desperation.

Fortunately, the Pirates have no reason to be desperate. I can understand why they would be trying to strike a deal right now, but if they can't, they can just promote Eric Fryer, who I like much better than Dusty Brown or Wyatt Toregas. It's a relatively small sample size, but Fryer is hitting .333/.423/.553 between Class AA and AAA this year; there's simply no reason for the Pirates to give up anything interesting for some team's third-string catcher.
