    Guys I’m usually pretty conservative with prospects but if we can get Trout for Meadows and deGrom for Keller I think I’d do it and make a run this year

    Corey Dickerson has been pulled from the game.

    If Huntington trades him during a win streak like this...

    Nah. He was trying to beat out that grounder to second (I was honestly cringing watching him running so hard) and they took him out after. He was grimacing

    If we were a winning franchise we would have said he was pulled as a sign of mercy for the Indians.

    At the moment I like this deal for several reasons.

    1. Hearn has progressed well, but is still a bit of a wild card at AA.
    2. Hearn was also merely a throw-in in the trade where we acquires Felipe Vazquez for Mark Melancon :loldog:
    3. GMNH turning Melancon into Rivero and now Kela (who is under team control until 2021) is pretty good.
    The only thing that (potentially) is not to like is the PTBNL.

    Shane Baz's name has come up, and he's been less than stellar to start his professional career.

    Like this move a lot assuming the second PTBNL is not a top guy. I’m not big on hearns and Kela is a solid, controllable reliever. This is dare a say the type of smart move we needed that helps now and later.

    These lineups are definitely shit, that's for sure.

    We won yesterday, had to go for a win tonight too and its not looking promising.

    Pretty sure Kingham is the odd man out with Archer in town and he sure pitched like it tonight.

    Season over.

    Overall I'm pleased. 82 wins is pretty impressive considering they traded away Cutch & Cole before the season even started.

    As far as the offseason goes, I'd be OK with moving Cervelli out. Elias Diaz has proven he can be the everyday catcher.

    I want Frazier & Kang in the middle infield. It's clear that Newman and Kramer need another year.

    Colin Moran made a late season adjustment at the plate and I think he improves next year.

    Dickerson, Marte, and yes, I want Pablo Cruz in RF until Polanco returns mid season 2019.

    Pitching staff looks very, very solid.
    Taillon has emerged as our #1 IMO. His numbers were fantastic this year.
    Chris Archer will settle in and be just fine.
    Trevor Williams may see a bit of regression, but who knows? Didnt expect the year he had.
    Ivan Nova is better than most teams #4 starters.
    I guess its gonna be Kingham in 5 spot with Kuhl out the whole year. I wouldn't be surprised to see GMNH dumpster dive for some competition to push him. Clay Holmes is not the answer, Mitch Keller needs a full season at Indy.

    Bullpen should be good again. Crick turned out to be very reliable, Kela is a stud, Vazquez is a stud.

    There's a big amount of money coming off the books. $16m or so between Harrison & Mercer alone. I'm curious if they'll spend any of that. Time will tell.

    You are forgetting about Musgrove. He'll be in the rotation, not Kingham. Pirates are mediocre (.500 record) and lack stars. While their pitching isn't bad, their position players are less than average. No hope for the playoffs any time soon.

    Huntington just said Kang won’t be playing SS next year. If he returns it’s as a 3B. Not sure why that’s the case

    I don't know if this is the #Pittsburgh Pirates thread I'm supposed to be posting in, but... is this team going to be worth a shit this year or not?
    Pitching staff looks legit on paper, don't see where they're going to get runs though, even if Kang is juiced and sober, and Polanca can still swing a bat when he returns from that shoulder.
