Hacker traded to Pirates

As I said when he was first DFA'd: "We wish you nothing but the best of luck as you land with a new organization. Hopefully it will be soon and with one that can better utilize you."

Looks like that wish is coming true.

The Pirates have acquired minor league starter Eric Hacker from the New York Yankees, a source disclosed this afternoon. The rest of the trade details are not yet known.
The Pirates have had some good luck in working with Yanks' cast-offs. Let's hope that continues with Eric.

Wow, quite a break for Hacker. Hopefully he sees some action with the Pirates shortly!
