You might be able to pry the chorizo away from Milwaukee, although in that case you'd probably have to take back Randall Simon as part of the deal. And what, you aren't digging the brothers LaRoche at the infield corners? Rick Peterson would probably love to come back to Pittsburgh, although his merits as a pitching coach are debatable.
