"They (the Pirates) are not making the playoffs, and they would be fools to start buying." "Even if they (the Pirates) got to the playoffs, which I just think is close to a zero probability, they would not go far in the playoffs at all. They are not even close to any other potential playoff team."
- Keith Law on the Baseball Today podcast July 5, 2012
UPDATE from David: Keith said the same thing many times last year and was obviously right. We'll see how this season plays out or if his views change at all as we get closer to the deadline.
