Jason Bay Trade, The Pirates and Rays Are Talking

The Pirates' entire organization is devoid of pitching talent. They have Jason Bay. The Rays have tons of young pitching talent. Maybe these two crazy kids should get together. Dejan Kovacevic's PBC Blog at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says they might:'The Pirates and Tampa Bay continue to discuss Jason Bay, a process that became deep yesterday, and two prospect names known to be in the mix on the Rays' end are shortstop Reid Brignac and pitcher Jeremy Hellickson.'

Jason Bay has had a much more productive 2008, hitting .287 with 19 home runs and 53 runs batted in through the All Star break. In a May series against the Chicago Cubs, Bay had extra-inning walk off hits in back-to-back games; the first two walk off hits of his career. A month later, he got his third walk off hit of the season and his career with a 13th-inning solo home run against the Tampa Bay Rays.
