    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.

    Nope. Pirates are hiring Travis Williams. He works for the Islanders and used to work for the Penguins.

    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?

    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 .

    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

    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?

    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

    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.
