Pirates Claim Brandon Wood Off Waivers
So says Aaron Gleeman. As I said previously, good luck with your new club, Brandon.
Update: The trenchant Christina Kahrl at ESPN:
The challenge is going to be if Wood's fortunes will improve at all on Clint Hurdle's watch, because the Pirates' past acquisitions of other people's top prospects haven't worked out reliably well. Andy LaRoche and Lastings Milledge had both lauded among the best young hitters in baseball before resorting to Piracy, but both failed to turn any corners at the plate after their acquisitions, and both are already ex-Pirates.
