I had a few minutes so I thought I would provide you folks with a couple of links real quick.
Pat at WHYGAVS takes a look at who the Pirates may consider putting on the trading block this offseason.
Cory at A New Pirates Generation continues to play fantasy GM after the alleged signing of Yuslan Herrera. There a bit of additional information provided in the comments section, plus someone who claims to be from Cuba.
Charlie at Bucs Dugout was reading the comics this morning. He also reports that Joe Randa expects to retire this offseason.
Finally, David at Baseball Analysts writes an interesting article about pitch location. I'm not sure that there's anything extremely valuable to learn from the data, but it's interesting nonetheless.
Now go and read. This writing thing is easier when you just use articles by other people.
EDIT: Here's an update on the Yuslan Herrera situation from the Post-Gazette (link via WHYGAVS). Basically Dave Littlefield declines an opportunity to confirm the signing, and also it states that Herrera likely would not be with the Major League club even if he is signed.
Pirates.com is reporting that a three year deal is set, pending only a physical.
