I also see the Pirates as being buyers at the deadline, especially if they're able to keep up their current pace. Amaro should try to take advantage of their success and the kind of excitement surrounding the team. Hunter Pence would be a nice addition for them, and Pittsburgh's farm system is chock full of enticing prospects.
Id like Olt, or Nick Castellanas(Tigers) who was ranked 12th in BA rankings today as Olt was one ahead of him. I just dont know if the Pirates would pay Pence's salary and then pay him another year.
