The Pirates continued their yearly in season fire sale, sending All-Star second basemen Freddy Sanchez to the San Fransisco Giants for Tim Alderson.

Many are saying that the Giants overpaid for Sanchez, and we agree; Alderson was ranked by Baseball America as the No. 4 prospect in the San Francisco organization entering this season. He has a 7-2 record and a 3.65 ERA in two minor league stops this season.
