I swear the Pirates are cursed. The only time they hold on to an asset in a rebuilding mode he’s going to be thrown prison for 10 years. Deservedly so as well, but it’s comical at this point.
Cole absolutely dealing. Going to have to turn this off just a combination of sad, cynical, and angry. Third former buc to start a 2019 playoff game
WE DID IT BOYS THE NIGHTMARE IS OVER
sounds like Huntington may get promoted to president and tasked with hiring his own replacement. only in Pittsburgh!
Nope. Pirates are hiring Travis Williams. He works for the Islanders and used to work for the Penguins.
If only they had a new owner then I'd be optimistic.
No more Marte partays
im done with pirates baseball. Not related to this transaction but just everything over my lifetime really.
Payroll currently sitting around $43 million. I’m happy to trade for prospects, but can we find a Reggie Sanders type free agent who may be fun to watch til we trade him?
Is Derek Bell available?
That's absurdly low. For comparison the NHL salary floor is like 60 mil
Newman already makes an error. He’s so bad defensively it’s insane
Shelton is soooooo bad
Control your pitcher
What the fuck is Shelton doing?
We have let a 4 game lead on last place shrink to 1.5 with 4 games to go.
Shelton is still putting our best lineup out there every day. About to win another blowout today.
Only the Pirates would give a way a chance to draft a generational talent in Rocker
Fuck this fucking loser ass team i am so sick of it .
Have they said how the draft order is going? Thought it was TBD
it was announced it will be my order of finish, first to last.
rangers already getting killed tonight.
We will have a 1 game lead on last with 3 games to play.
a week ago I thought we had it in the bag.
we’re an absolute train wreck.
if we don’t run out a bunch of career minor leaguers tomorrow, give them their moment in the son, and then send Del Pozo out there for 9 innings, I am going to lose my mind
It is truly unbelievable that we are going to give up the clear #1 pick. I hate this franchise so much
Bob is probably wanting Shelton to win so we don’t have to pay rocker
We had a 4 game lead a week ago. Incredible collapse
It’s down to 1 game boys.
we get the Indians
Rangers get the Astros.
magic number is 3
Only the Pirates are this stupid....
How many games were we up on the rangers?
4 with 7 left
down to 1 and if we tie rangers finish last
Edit: tiebreaker is last year’s record, so we get first pick in the event of a tie.
Could've let us win a couple
Pirates legit probably don’t want to pay the top pick. The plan continues to be horrible with no hope of improvement because actually being decent costs money. Why spend money when you can just make it?
That other righty from Vanderbilt will prob be good but rocker will go on to the rangers to be a multi all star
If whoever we get shows any potential we will trade him ASAP for some mid tier prospects then if any of them develop we will trade them and repeat the process.
Agree. Having the worst record puts the Pirates in a corner. They don't want to pay Rocker but will be pressured to pick him because he appears to be the clear #1 prospect.
If, instead, they get the 2nd pick it provides them with cover. They can watch the Rangers pick Rocker and then they can make their typical cheaper, lesser, signable choice and claim he was #2 on their draft board.
I know people always say this but at what point do we seriously stop just following the pirates? It’s very clear this franchise will never ever win a WS or even come close under nutting. What is the point?
lets all go watch the padres
Getting the top pick though!
I am a fan to honor my dad. I would have ditched this trainwreck a long time ago otherwise. They make me so angry.
I haven't watched or listened to a game in 3 1/2 years.
I generally only pay attention closely when betting against them. Those are the games they win
I follow but don't watch
There's just no excitement anymore. The farm system is middle of pack at best
At least in late 2000s you had a really good farm system to look forward to. Every top prospect recently has been a bust, like polanco. Bell is looking like 2019 was an aberation. Cruz is probably going to jail. Hayes and Keller look good in limited time. Taillon has been decent when not injured
We have a handful of top 100 prospects but most project to debut in 2022 and 2023. Next year is another tank year, unfortunately.
MLB.com has us with 3
Lmao we are gonna win again
3-1 lead and rangers tied 2-2 in the 7th. Unbelievable
We did it!!!!! Blew a 2 run 9th inning lead
Shoutout to Shelton for leaving Stratton, a righty, out there to face lefties when he was clearly struggling.
