than last year. I am happy with the moves made..Nyjer is an upgrade defensively over Bay, and Monroe/Moss will be fine in Right field...they wont put up what nady did last year but... they will hold serve. The pitching looks to be good. Let go of the trades the Pirates did the right thing. They were only winning 65-67 with Bay, why not trade him for talent...and the Bucs look like they could make a run at .500 this season.

If it makes you feel any better, Nady will never hit like Nady did the first half of last year either.

I agree with you partially, obviously the pitching this year is much better so far.

If we had last year's offense with the great pitching we are getting so far this year, that would have been a team to be reckoned with.

I still don't like what we traded Bay for. I think we could have got more. There were other offers out there for him.

Jeremy Hermida looks like a legit player now, but hes a bit older than Moss I could be mistaken

Hermida is far and away better than Moss, but there are number of problems with Hermida. First, Hermida has been in the league for a while and is already arbitration eligible, meaning that the Pirates would have had fewer years of control over Hermida's employment. Second, he strikes out a lot and does not walk enough to compensate for it. Third, he has some health issues. Fourth, dealing with Florida implies no longer dealing with LA, and the two best players that came out of the Bay trade (LaRoche and Morris) came from LA.

I'm not worried about Hermida's strikeout totals. But his inability to get on base and his lack of true power do.
