Report: Adam LaRoche to the Boston Red Sox

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The Pittsburgh Pirates, whose philosophy seems to be "get rid of all our best players," have reportedly agreed to deal first baseman Adam LaRoche to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for prospects.

To be fair to the Bucs, LaRoche is pulling in just over $7 million this season and will be a free agent after the year. They weren't expected to court him in the offseason.

The left-handed hitter was leading the Pirates with 12 home runs and 40 RBI and will join former teammate Jason Bay out in Boston.

Earlier this season, the Pirates dealt All-Star-caliber center fielder Nate McLouth and up-and-coming speedster Nyjer Morgan.
