Pirates stun the world, trade for Eveland pt. 2

Today the Pirates announced they were DFA'ing recent acquisition Dana Eveland. This comes a mere three weeks after acquiring him for 40 man roster player, and possible closer candidate Ronald Uviedo. This is another in a series of odd moves that the Pirates have made, including trading for rental Akinori Iwamura, and seem like desperation moves. This really doesn't surprise me because I never liked the deal in the first place, and Eveland has literally sucked out loud for most of his career.

So there you have it. We essentially gave the BlueJays Uviedo. They must really like trading with us. We gave them Uviedo, and Jose Bautista. Neil Huntington really needs to sit down and evaluate who he has judging this major league talent because he flat out sucks at acquiring ML guys.
