The primary pieces getting shopped are those eligible for free agency after this season, meaning outfielders Jeromy Burnitz and Craig Wilson, third baseman Joe Randa, first baseman Sean Casey, starter Kip Wells and reliever Roberto Hernandez.
Littlefield strongly suggested that he will not be parting with players the Pirates can keep for the long term.
"We've had some discussion about those kinds of trades. Could they be a possibility? Sure. But most likely, you wait until the offseason for those types of trades."
D'oh! Sounds like we wait for the real trades then. This team is doing so good as it is; I don't see why DL would feel any urgency to mess much with the current chemistry.
