Manfred says Union proposal will damage Small Market teams

What a clown Manfred is. Now he gives a shit about the small market teams? Guy is a piece of crap. Put a salary cap and floor in like every other sport in America has. That will solve both the Pirates problems. Level the playing field and force Nutting to spend money. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/...

Re: Brault DFA'd

Guy is a AAAA pitcher. Will have a long MLB career bouncing around bullpens. Liked him overall as a good clubhouse guy, but that doesn't win baseball games.

Re: Colin Moran DFA'd

Thanks Colin Moran. Always a pro. But again, nothing to get upset about. He was an average major league player at best.

Re: Stallings Traded To Marlins

I was disappointed to see this but not surprised. The Pirates aren't winning anything this year and they have been consistent with what they are doing - stocking the farm system. I do see the argument to have a veteran catcher to manage young pitchers but I am also guessing Stallings' stock won't be...

Re: Gamel Signs for $1.8 Million

The one year deal fills spots on the MLB roster, but also allows the player to become potential trade bait if he ends up being valuable during the season. I am not a big Gamel fan but he did bring a lot of energy and leadership to the clubhouse.

Well-deserved. Sign him to long-term deal. Too valuable to this young pitching staff.

No more postseason for me

I haven't watch much because I don't get TBS, but I won't watch another pitch with these four teams still left. Dodgers - The new Yankees. Buy. Buy. Buy. Red Sox - Massholes. Obnoxious fan base. Spend. Spend. Spend Astros - Cheaters Braves - Tomahawk Chop. Francisco Cabrera. Yuck When's Opening Day?...

Re: Not impressed with Shelton

I think pulling pitchers too early or too late when you lose 100 games is irrelevant. It will become relevant when they are a contender and does he behave the same in that situation. I think he wants to see if these guys can face adversity and tough situations and see how they come out. I have no pr...
