I agree, sort of. Their best chance will, indeed, come after 2010, so long as they spend the money to retain key players and don't re-enter the perpetual rebuilding thing with more trades. You are right about the "sometime after" 2010 for their best chance.

I don't think their FIRST chance is 2010. Their first chance is 2009. There's a chance to win every year. I hope they take advantage of that chance and continue to build this team.

Yes, there is a chance that they could win in 2009, and there is a chance that my cat will start coughing up hairballs of solid gold. I'm more interested in what's LIKELY to happen.

I must admit that there is a better chance of a winning 2009 for the Pirates than there is for solid gold hairballs, though. :lol:


You said "balls" ... huhu hu huhuhuhu hu

Again, I keep getting back to asking if Nate has enough power to play LF, as he will most likely be supplanted in CF very soon.

I don't think so.

So, given the lesson's we've all learned why wouldn't you trade Nate at his peak? Especiallyl for some real talent back at a position of need?

There are people who think he can hit enough to play a corner outfield position.

I would be willing to trade Nate, but not for a guy like Cano.

ZM-

Fair point. But, if we can sit on a message board and doubt that Nate is going to be a long term solution, wouldn't other GM's be doing the same? I think if he goes out and repeats next year, suddenly he isn't a one-year wonder. I'm sure a lot of GM's are wanting to see him do it twice. His trade value would skyrocket. So if you are confident that he could put those numbers up again next year (I am), I think its wise to let him repeat and build value. IN other words, he isn't at his peak value yet (and has several years of club control). Besides, its not as if McCutchen tore the cover off the ball at Indy. If he lights up AAA next year, then deal with it.
