Diamond Notes

Will the Pirates make a bold move this off-season and land Adam Dunn?

Jerry Cransicks a contributor to ESPN.com is reporting 5 big name players are on on the trading block

1. Adam Dunn
2. Vernon Wells
3. Mark Teixeira
4. Andrew Jones
5. Carl Crawford.

Crasnick says that Pittsburgh makes the most sense to land Adam Dunn but whether management would make such a bold move is a different story. “Pittsburgh makes some sense, given the short right field at PNC Park and the team’s need for a lefty power hitter. But it’s hard to see the Pirates shelling out the coin for Dunn. They’re more likely to focus on a younger, less costly bat, such as Arizona’s Chad Tracy or Florida’s Mike Jacobs. The Reds would most likely want a impact pitcher and impact hitting in return for Dunn. Marlins first base man Mike Jacobs is one name that the Pirates have lots of interest in. The Pirates have made it known that Chris Duffy is available but it would take more than Duffy to land Jacobs.
