Pirates Sign Matt Diaz

Several sources are reporting that Matt Diaz has signed a two-year deal with the Pirates.

Though Diaz rakes LHPs it’s kind of a puzzling move in that the Bucs aren’t going anywhere in ’11 and Diaz will be 33 in March. Wouldn’t they have been better off holding on to Lastings Milledge, who is 7 years younger with a more complete skill set? Maybe the Pirates see Diaz as a more valuable piece of trade bait come July.
