Interviews
Twelve Questions with Brandon Moss

Traded to Pittsburgh with Craig Hansen in a three way deal that sent Manny Ramirez and cash considerations to Los Angeles (NL), with Los Angeles sending Andy LaRoche and Bryan Morris to Pittsburgh, and Pittsburgh sending Jason Bay to Boston

Scouting Report
: Athletic outfielder with a very strong arm.  Excellent approach at the plate - good swing with a refined power and on base ability.  Hits to all fields.  Slightly above average speed for a right fielder. Solid in the field.  Tough competitor.  Fantastic teammate and individual who takes joy in playing the game.  Moss possesses a good mental approach to the game, able to evaluate his mistakes while still not harping on them.  Moss began a transition to becoming a part-time 1B in late 2007, and he's handled it rather smoothly.
