The Pittsburgh Pirates traded first baseman Adam LaRoche to the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

The Pirates will receive minor league shortstop Argenis Diaz and one other prospect in return for LaRoche, Foxsports.com reported.

In his sixth major league season, LaRoche is hitting .247 with 12 homers and 40 RBIs.

Diaz is batting .253 for the Red Sox's Double-A affiliate in Portland, Maine.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported the trade.
Really? Why don't we just release the entire team and get rid of baseball in Pittsburgh?

Great move for Boston...gives them a ton of depth.

LaRoche wasnt going to last on Pittsburgh anyways

LaRoche is a better then average player, he can be a good platoon type of player.

I don't understand how this Pirates team cannot have a winning season. They trade so many of their good young talent for prospects, but the prospects never seem to be superstars when they reach the Majors.
