what is the best way to ruin your week after the pirates sign three elite pitchers? you announce the pirates books! that was more annoying than huntington drafting moskos over weiters! Oh wait....that def. wasnt huntington...but thats a different post lol So im tired about hearing about the pirates financial matters the way they were laid out there. Its pretty obvious that mcclatchy was the real disaster, not Nutting. The spending the last 3 years on the draft is evidence that Nutting actually is willing to spend money and improve the team. Sooo...on a brighter note...what is the lineup of the future? is it:
Personally... I think by the time our pitchers we just drafted are starting to be in their prime, huntington is going to have to make a move with the roster. Meaning...is it best to trade alvarez for some solid starts to compliment taillon, and the others that will actually make us better...whether the payroll goes up or not, its either keep mccutchen or keep alvarez...i cant see us keeping both long-term. i think cutch is the face of the franchise, and people havent really warmed up to alvarez cause he still comes off as a jerk since the whole boras fiasco. is it just me or does alvarez seem a little like bonds all over again? thoughts anyone?
