Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

I think the Carlos Santana is a nice upgrade at first, but if we want to be one of the top 25 teams in baseball we should have got a top 25 ranked first baseman in baseball. On a positive, I have read nothing but good things about his leadership with young teammates. To me, signing Carlos Santana ma...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

Don't forget the Pirates acquiring Lewin Diaz who hit 8 homers in 128 at bats with the Marlins. I would think he is a .5 or a 1.

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

The Pirates made 2 minor transacions. 1) The Pirates traded 26 year old Hoy Park to the Red Sox for 18 year old pitcher Inmer Lobo. 2) The Pirates claimed 26 year old first baseman Lewin Diaz from the Marlins. I think the deals make sense. It makes more sense to have a first baseman on the 40 man ro...

Re: Newman Traded To Cincy

I wonder if the fact that Newman was arbitration eligible had anything to do with the trade?

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

I would say that when a guy has one halfway decent year I figured if I put a positive spin on the Pirates, I would get shot down. Better than a halfway decent year is a decent year. Better than a decent year would be a good year. 25 homers 97 rbis .297 average, runner up to Ohtani for rookie of the...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

Maybe Andujar can put together his rookie season numbers and become a 4 again. At age 23 He had 573 at bats 25 homers 97 rbis and a .297 average.

Re: Newman Traded To Cincy

Moreta pitched in double A and triple A in 2021. He was 6 an 0 53 innings 31 hits 9 walks and a 1.02 ERA. The bad news is he was below average. I might be wrong, but I think this trade opens a spot on the 40 man roster if the Pirates want to pursue one of the nontendered players. Monetary would hav...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

In advance of the Rule 5 draft deadline, the Pirates have announced they’ve selected the contracts of Endy Rodriguez, Mike Burrows, Colin Selby and Jared Triolo to their 40-man roster. In corresponding moves, Tyler Heineman, Jeremy Beasley, Manny Banuelos and Junior Fernandez have all been designate...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

I probably should have clarified what I meant by a mess. Their young guys have not lived up to their hype. Their expensive players are overpaid and not performing up to what they signed them for (guys like Chris Sale, James Paxton, Trevor Story etc). Shortstop Xander Boegarts is now a free agent. Th...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

I think the market will never get higher for Bryan Reynolds than it will this off-season. The free agent market is stocked with all star pitchers, shortstops, first basemen and one outfielder named Aaron Judge. After Judge, Bryan Reynolds is better than the rest, so I'm sure the offers will be comin...

Re: World Series Predictions-Join In!

So, I'm talking to this couple in Philly. The husband badmouths the Phils. "They suck!," he says. This was after Game 5. I said, "Sir, right now, your team's second best. If they wi. The next two games, they're world champions." "They still suck," says he. Reading this...

Since you took that, I'll go the other way, using what my head thinks rather than what my heart hopes happens.

Stros. Six.
Here is our winner.
