Pirates Notebook: Fifth starter might come from a trade with Atlanta

Seems reasonable, though I wouldn’t want Salomon Torres. First impressions and all. Torres would just about make up for the salary difference between Wilson and Thomson if that’s a concern.

I’d rather trade HoRam but the Pirates don’t need a lefty. Pick up Carlos Pena? I dunno. He’s not actually that good — actually, he’s a lot like LaRoche, minus BA, plus walks. I would have given Hee Seop Choi a chance, but nobody asked me.

13 minutes to the fantasy draft.
