Pirates/Sawx pretty close on a deal sending Hanrahan to Boston.
Not really sure why they'd trade him away, but alrighty then. Pirates aren't that far away from competing, and I know relievers are a dime a dozen, but still... Just reeks of a quitters attitude, like they're not even going to try and compete.
Why did they stop attacking the rim? They stopped moving and kept taking jump shots. They were getting buckets attacking the rim, and Mizzou probably would have started getting into foul trouble. They got away from it. When they went on that 8-0 run, Bertrand was murdering them going to the tin.
