Was sad to see the article about the boros interview on Bell signing longterm with the pirates....bell is my favorite Player since Stargell,he's a switch hitter and a really great person.....BUT..... The Pirates aren't going to sign him longterm. they just ain't. I'd say trade him NOW rather than wait later. He is having a monster season with a juiced ball.I would not give him up cheap or even reasonable, but if I could get a great haul back, three top prospects, I'd do it NOW....

The pirates should also trade Vazquez, Marte Dickerson, and trevor Williams.....They are just not good enough to win this year and they need to go ahead now and get started on a rebuild.If they could somehow get Lux and Smith from the Dodgers it would really help....
