Neal...we’re not mad you traded Cole and Cutch, you fucking moron.

We’re mad because you got nothing back but a bag of baseballs for them!

Wrong. We are mad that you didn't build around them when you had them.

Lesson of the proud #Pirates rebuild:
You gotta finish the job.
Pirates stayed Bottom 7 in payroll thru the run.
#Astros didn’t
#Cubs didn’t.
#Royals didn’t

C’mon guys...these trades are insignificant. Jordo is still on the roster...isn’t he?

No top prospects involved.

Why am I not surprised?


Bryan Reynolds is the #5 prospect for the Giants. It is also noted that the Giants have the worst farm system in MLB.

I just can't care anymore.

As am I. The return the Pirates got for Cutch was about as good as you can really expect. He isn't an elite player anymore. His salary wasn't huge but not exactly cheap either. And he only has a year of term left. This wasn't like Cole which they completely botched. My issue is they completed wasted the tenure of an icon. And frankly I think Cutch was an important enough figure and the face of this franchise that the team should have just went for one last thrust for his final year. I don't even understand this from a financial aspect. They got no real impact return for him. They had to throw in $2.5 million dollars along with him. Is the $12 million in salary savings really worth the 200-300 K attendance drop because of this? Not to mention they are now up against the end of their local TV contract. Ratings are sure to drop. That can't be good for negotiations. In the grand scheme of things I don't think this really saves them much at all. I don't think they are great business people. They aren't trying to grow revenue, which is something good business people are always striving to do. They are just lazy and happy to take MLB welfare.

maybe this rich ass hole owner wants tv contract to suck; attendance to plummet and interest to disappear.. all to move the team some place for a sweet heart cash windfall and stadium elsewhere.

Sadly it's hard to spin this front office's moves in a positive way anymore. I think this line pretty much nails it, Pro.

My young son likes to go to the ballpark. I'll probably take him to a couple few Sunday kid's day games, then a Saturday night game or two with some buddies (some Cubs and Reds fans and we tear it up dahntahn pre and post game). Maybe 4-5 games total this year if they suck, which I fully expect they will. Way down from the 15 or so a year in recent years.

I think The Nut will feel it in his wallet this year. Fuck that guy.
