Lets play a fun game!
I will give a Headline on the Pirates website and you must replace and the info below it with your own view of the topic.



What a catch! Bucs draft highly touted backstop
With the fourth-overall pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, the Pirates selected Boston College catcher Tony Sanchez -- a choice that strengthens their strategy from here on out. Full story >

The Pirates can sign him and say his glove is great. Probably has a SICK CERA

What a Save! The Pirates save millions by drafting inferior talent early.

FOOLED YOU AGAIN! OR DID I?

"Remember when I said that our pursuit of Dominican prodigy Miguel Angel Sano would have no effect on the way we draft in the 2009 MLB Draft? It's because we knew all along we'd be drafting cheap, easily signable players that have no business being picked in the round we actually selected them in. So certainly we'll have the money to sign young Mr Sano. Unless he wants too much. Then no, we won't sign him at all, making this draft a spectacular clusterfuck. All you poor saps should have paid attention when I said you'd be dissapointed with our draft. I'm no liar, I just know how to spin words. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, --Neal Opie E. Huntington.

With the fourth-overall pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, the Pirates selected Boston College catcher Tony Sanchez -- a choice that strengthens their wallets from here on out, and now makes me realize that Neal Huntington is a joke. Screw you Opie, screw you.
Just couldn't pull that cash out could ya to get Aaron Crow.
