Jason Michaels a Pirate, Morgan Demoted

Today, the Pirates acquired outfielder Jason Michaels and cash from the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later.  Nyjer Morgan was demoted to AAA Indianapolis to make room on the 25 man roster.

 

BTW Take:

Wow.  Michaels was a fan favorite in Cleveland, his release seemed to be a knee jerk reaction by Cleveland in an attempt to jump start their offense.  Michaels is a corner outfielder, who will be a helpful bat from the bench.  I would not classify him as a defensive replacement, but he is a good utility or 4th outfielder.  He he, 4th outfielder.  Isn't that the tag Nate had through his entile MLB career?

 

On a side note:

This may be my last post for a few days, due to family issues.  While I am out, check out the forum and get some discussions going.  I might be able to check in there occasionally and drop some smart a$$ comments.  Check back regularly over the next few days, if I post it will be at odd times just to keep my sanity.
