AA should be making at least 1 more deal. Lets see what he does.

Also can someone refer me to some good twitter accounts for baseball rumors and stuff
Great in limited major league time. He couldn't make the Pirates and is in the minors

From an outsiders point of view I always felt Snider wasn't given a fair shot or consistent playing time. I wouldn't be surprised to see him thrive if he has confidence in his manager giving him consistent playing time.

Im calling him as part of an upton deal ala the rasmus deal.
I have a strong feeling that he does nothing with this guy. It's not like he's like Wallace and they are flipping him for Gose. Probably thinks he got the steal of the century. He's believing his own hype and forgetting about the team in Toronto. Hope I'm wrong but he's stacking the minors and sacrificing the Jays.

I'm not a big fan of this trade but you're just making crap up. He's pitched 59.1 innings with 60k's and a 1.096 WHIP this year with the Pirates. He was also a 4th overall pick.

It sucks giving up on someone we had high hopes on but he was given multiple chances and couldn't take advantage.

Nice trade, at the end of the day we give up a player who wasn't of any use. We acquire another power arm who can start or could come in the 7th or 8th inning. Not bad.

Wow great.. He's pitched 60 innings. Time to shut him down. It's the typical AA trade. Go out to LF and hope you look like a genius. Why isn't he in the majors then? Do you even know who he is?

It's just another case of the prospect freaks on these boards getting overly attached to a player and then crying and whining when the team moves him.

I would usually disagree lol but he really wasn't going to be playing here. For some reason they didn't like him.

Hopefully we got a useful player who makes us better.

He is in the majors. The Pirates have been using him as a late inning reliever and were planning on using him in that role for the rest of the season.

WOW. We got ripped off. Travis is going to be a star in Pittsburgh. Still don't know why AA didn't like him.

I'm sure we must have saved $$$ somehow now or in the long run

1. He's in the majors right now
2. I've heard that he's highly touted, lots of potential.... our outfield is too crowded, Snider for Lincoln is a fair deal.
3. Someone mentioned before that Lincoln could be dealt in another deal, which AA seems to like to do.

80% of you are freaking out even though you haven't seen him pitch, done your research or heard of him.

How dense are you? He's pitched 60 innings in the MAJORS.

It's not that he didn't like him, it's that Bautista, Rasmus and Davis was a better outfield, and Snider wasn't good in any stints until this most recent one

You know it's not even about Snider, it's about the same frigging trade template every single time. How about get someone even the most casual fan has heard of instead of getting these players that might help, if they turn it around with a change of scenery. It's nice a couple of times, but these are wearing on me. Just keeps solidifying his .500 team. No difference makers

I've had it with AA's obsession with "years of control" like we're a small market team. We're owned by Rogers ****ing communications. We should be able to pony up and pay our players big $$$ without having to lose them through FA. We shouldn't be trading our prospects for mediocre relievers just because they have "years of control."

Like I said in the GDT, this is like the Leafs trading Kadri for a low-ceiling shutdown defenseman, like a Marc Methot.
