its a weird trade proposal all around. it says the pirates dont care for gaby sanchez (who may go the other way as the "additional roster player", but i doubt it) and would get a mediocre, switch hitting 1b back in Smoak. You get a decent catcher in return, numbers wise, but wouldnt get much PT with the recent FA signing. It frees up some salary, but doesnt make the pirates better. maybe i overvalue GJ's bat, but i dont like this idea at all.
