Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

Agree. Thumbs down for Diaz and Choi, but for one more reason. They do nothing to improve an already not good team. Didn't cost anything. Thumbs up for Santana. He improves the club. It might be for a limited time, but that's true of all players. No one player takes the club to contention, but one c...

Re: Pirates Sign Santana

It's a one-year deal that's most likely to be four months.

So what if it ends badly?

Better than STARTING year after year badly. As in- before seasons even begin.

Re: Pirates Sign Santana

Here's my options: Take A) Santana or B) Anyone else we have. A) Give Santana the money or B) BOB keeps the money. I take A and move on. Props to Ben. If it works, great. If it doesn't, good enough attempt. Is Ben Gamel worth $6.72 million? He has better numbers the last three years than Santana an...

I'm intrigued to see how The Esteemed Panel Of Judges goes about this one.

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

I don't think that I shot your opinion down. This is a problem that the written word can lead to. I take a neutral stance on the guy. I really don't know whether he's the guy from his early year....or, the guy from more recent. This is his opportunity. He might not get many others. Just about all 30...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

So, which is the anomoly/outlier?

I would say that when a guy has one halfway decent year followed by that many more duds, that the halfway decent year is the outlier.

Especially going from a decent team to....

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

One season where he appeared in >45 games. I'd say that 1.5 would be generous.

Cory Bellinger non-tendered by the Dodgers. Cherington should do something to justify his pay. Get Bellinger. Put him at first base for four months, when, of course, it will be time to dump him.

Re: World Series Predictions-Join In!

I wouldn't think that the Cards have more of a national following than the Dodgers and Cubs. Who knows? Not sure how or even if things like that or "knowledge" is measurable. Going by another message board out there (not this one, of course) I'm ruling out the Pirates for the answer to you...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

I would say that no fan who has seen his team lose 100 games in the National League Central Division two years in a row should call a team that had a much better record in a far more difficult American League East division 'a mess.' Just my direct opinion. A team like ours has several terrible contr...

Re: Pirates Acquire Choi From Tampa

How does one prepare for ST?

All you need to do is hop a plane. I guess he has to pack his underwear or something.
