Looks like the fire sale in Pittsburgh isn't quite over yet. It was Jason Bay and Xavier Nady last year. This year it's practically been the whole team. To recap: Nate McLouth, Nyjer Morgan, Adam LaRoche, Jack Wilson, Ian Snell, Freddy Sanchez, and Sean Burnett have all said goodbye to The Steel City. The latest trade sends Tom Gorzelanny and John Grabow to the Cubs for Jose Ascanio, Kevin Hart, Josh Harrison. Chicago now boasts 3 potential JMLs in Grabow, Aaron Poreda, and Sam Fuld.
Kevin Youkilis was 2-4 with 1 double (his 26th) and 1 run scored against the A's.
Ryan Braun was 0-4 against the Nationals.
Ian Kinsler once again sat out with a strained left hamstring. It doesn't appear to be too serious.
Brad Ausmus was 2-5 with 1 run scored against the Cardinals.
Craig Breslow picked up his 5th loss and his 1st blown save of the season against the Red Sox. He gave up 1 run in 1/3 of an inning.
