Bucs land LaRoche
The Pirates finally closed a deal today for highly-coveted Atlanta Braves first baseman Adam LaRoche. A lot of news reports have come out about the deal, which is being reported as a four-player swap between the teams. No official word has been announced yet, although John Perrotto, of the Beaver County Times, says the Pirates are sending minor league shortstop Brent Lillibridge to the Braves and are receiving outfielder Jamie Romak.
