Yanks Ship Stewart to Pittsburgh

Chris Stewart

The Yanks have traded Chris Stewart to the Pirates for a player to be named later. Mike Axisa has the skinny.

Back-up catchers come and go and they tend to blur together in memory but Stewart was taut and hard–a prototype. Couldn’t hit but then again if he could he’d be a starting catcher. I enjoyed watching him work behind the plate. He has the GRRRRR that you want from a veteran catcher. Wish him well in Pittsburgh.

a player to be named Russell Martin perhaps? heh.

Yanks have done a lot of noticeable business with the Pirates the last few years, and it feels like they are getting the shit-end of the stick on most of those deals. I bet if they somehow traded A-Rod to Pittsburgh, the Yanks still lose on the deal and A-Rod would turn out to still be useful.

I guess that leaves the BUC position for Frankie. If Austin shows any signs of life, could he be trade bait?

ESPN is reporting that the Yanks have made a 1-year offer to Hiroki:
