PITTSBURGH - The Boston Red Sox have added one of the Pirates'
middle-of-the-order hitters for the second time in as many seasons,
acquiring first baseman Adam LaRoche for two midlevel prospects.
The trade, possibly the first of several involving the last-place
Pirates before the July 31 deadline for trading without waivers,
follows up last July's three-team deal that sent all-star outfielder
Jason Bay of Trail, B.C., to Boston.
The Pirates, who have traded five starting position players since
last July, will receive Double-A shortstop Argenis Diaz and Class-A
right-hander Hunter Strickland, an 18th-round draft pick two years
