Re: Pirates Get #1 Pick in 2023

Good thing the Pirates won the tie-breaker with the Reds. The Pirates now have the #1 pick instead of the #7 and I believe their slot money will be over 55% higher. Now let's try to compete in games in 2023, then make the play-offs in 2024.

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

Garcia was non-tenured by the Giants. He gets a reluctant 2 Before you get to it, I am giving Vince Velasquez another reluctant 2. Saw enough of him in Philly to rank him any higher Tommy Kahnle 1.5 I think the Giants let Garcia go because they didn't want to pay the 2.4 million. Pirates spent 2.5 ...

Re: Endy Rodriguez AA Stats

For those that care, Baseball America moved Endy Rodriguez up to their number one Pirate's prospect followed by 2) Termarr Johnson, 3) Henry Davis, 4) Luis Ortiz and 5) Quinn Priester.

Re: Bryan Reynolds

Calling BS on Mackey. If that's the case, why doesn't Mackey spit the number out? If he's afraid of losing a source, so what? How would Mackey know that he was told the truth? I agree with that. I can understand if a writer wants to be respectful with the player and ownership and not spit out numbe...

The Pirates need to have a free T-shirt night with your saying on it to help attendance.

Re: Bryan Reynolds

I heard Carlos Santana say through a translator that he came to the Pirates because he was excited they called and wanted him to play. Jose Quintanta came last year because the Pirates were the only team that promised him a spot in the rotation. So basically, we usually get our free agents because w...

If Reynolds really requested a trade, he might have just lowered what the Pirates can get in return for him. I might be wrong, but I want to call this on a blunder and blame Nutting.

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

They didn't release Newman. They traded him. $2.8 million for a punchless middle infielder who outside of 2021 was an average to below average fielder. A position where the Pirates have a surplus of options. They got a good arm in the exchange. Do you honestly think the Pirates would have traded Ne...

Re: Off Season 2022-2023 thread

There are some big name shortstops and starting pitchers as free agents this year, but the outfielders are pretty thin past Aaron Judge. From what I have been reading, the Pirates are not shopping Reynolds but a lot of teams are approaching the Pirates about him. I am guessing the Pirates won't sal...

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...
