And it's official: the Pirates have no good players left on their team.

I would take Andrew McCutchen.

At this point they should just deal Capps, Grabow, Duke and the other LaRoche.

I feel terrible for the fans in Pit. What a terribly run ballclub. Pretty certain our boys in Birmingham could beat the team they're running out there these days.

Me too, but the only quality veteran position player I can think of is Doumit.

He'll be traded within the next 4-6 years. :tongue:

Wow. I like the return for Pitt. Alderson is nice.

If he develops into anything, he will also be traded.

Indian fans right there with them.


The Indians have traded back to back Cy Young pitchers, that might be the first time in ML history.

Difference is Cleveland has proven ability to build winners. Pittsburgh well...umm...ya.

They have built a legit winner 1 time, 1 time in the last almost 50 years.


That team that won the division in '07 was a fluke.

Save the tigers and indians, the 07 ALC was pathetic. Even the mighty Twins finished under .500 IIRC. Funny thing is, Sox still had a winning record against that division that year. And crapped the bed against the NL and the other two divisions in the AL

Don't get me wrong, they've sucked of late, but they dominated the league in the 1990s.

I actually really like Sanchez and a couple other of their players. Their pitching has always been crappy

Too bad the Pirates play in Pittsburgh and not in Chicago. All you need is a pretty ballpark and you draw 3M fans...:tongue:

Right on.

That was the only legit winner they have built in most of our lifetimes here. Yet they couldn't even win the big one.


That fan base is so crushed right now it must be sad to be around there right now. It's a ghost town and IMO they have one of the nicest baseball stadiums out there.

Contract the Pirates and move the Marlins to PNC park. Two birds, one stone.

I say just airlift PNC to Miami and put a roof over it! Converge the two franchises, and you'd have a good enough team.

Zach Duke is a good pitcher, but don't worry. He'll be gone in a few years.

I haven't given up on contracting the Twins. In the 1970s I thought it was a good idea. A quart of a century later, I thought baseball was finally taking my advice. But the dream just disappeared, like a pop up against the metrodome ceiling.

The Giants are the team to beat now in the National League. They won't beat out the Dodgers, but when they get the wild card, they will roll into the NLDS with Lincecum and Cain and some hitting to back them up.

They were pretty good in the 60s and 70s too. That's more than once in 50 yrs.

Yeah, but that legitimate winner lasted eight years. That was a hell of a run.

Yeah, but I wouldn't trade our 1 World Series for their 0 WS and 8 good seasons.

Bingo. To quote our favorite ex-Jet and Chief coach Herm Edwards, "You play to win the game." They got no titles, so it don't matter.

They were pretty good in the 60s and 70s too. That's more than once in 50 yrs.

The Indians had a grand total of 4 winning seasons in those two decades, including 81-78 in 1976 and 81-80 in 1979.

Are we talking about the Pirates or the Indians?

The Indians were awful for decades from the 60s until they finally were contenders in 1994. That's what made them a good choice to the be team in the movie "Major League", they were laughingstocks for as long as most people could remember. Then in the 1990s, they had an incredibly good team that won 2 pennants.....but they failed to win the big prize.

The Pirates were a great franchise in the 60s and 70s. They were the team of Roberto Clemente. They won the WS in 1960, '71 and '79. Their last gasp of success was in the early 1990s when they won 3 straight division titles (back when there were only 2 divisions per league).

It's sad to see a franchise that I remember as being one of the better ones fall so far. The Pirates certainly have a rich history and, though I have never been there, I hear PNC Park is arguably the best in baseball. What a shame that they are now in this endless cycle of being just downright awful and constantly shipping off any talent they ever develop.

First this.

Continuing.

Then I respond to this thinking the poster was referring to the Indians when it seems the Pirates are the team in the poster was probably referring to.

They were pretty good in the 60s and 70s too. That's more than once in 50 yrs.


Now is that confusing enough? My only excuse is the White Sox play of late is distracting me. It's the best I got. I will now remove my previous post.
