Pirates, Red Sox “sniffing on” Luke Gregerson

Jul 31, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

First of all sniffing is rude and it’s appalling that major league front offices dabble in such monkey business. But let’s move on. Here’s the latest deadline-day trade rumor from Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe:

Gregerson boasts a 2.64 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 170 2/3 innings since the start of the 2011 season and he’s held right-handed batters to a .178/.213/.289 batting line here in 2013. The 29-year-old right-hander is making a $3.2 million salary this year and will be arbitration-eligible for the final time heading into 2014.

      Like dogs sniffing another dog’s ass, or the dog at a friends house that trots up and sniffs your crotch with relish. Due to possible PED use, teams are getting down and dirty when evaluating potential trade targets, and diligent sniffing is now the norm among the cognoscenti

    Ben Cherrington is clearly doing a great job for the Red Sox. No one expected this franchise to be this good this year. And, he is quietly getting the team in good shape for years to come. The only guy locked into long-term contract is Pedroia. Good stuff.

    Our Pen is so banged up, this would be a great pick up. I just think he price might be too high for him considering he is under control for 2014.
