Pirates get: Ryan McMahon(IF)

Rockies get: Juan Nicasio

Might be a little steep but given the lack of arms available at the deadline the price may be high

Pirates get: Ryan Mountcastle(SS) and Keegan Akin(LHP)

Orioles get: Juan Nicasio

Both teams need bullpen help in order to stay competitive in the long run

"Lack of arms available"

If they have a heart beat and play for San Diego, they'll be available. Teams won't be overpaying for mediocre upgrades this summer.

2.) 06 Jul 2017 06:53:20
Nicasio mediocre?

3.) 07 Jul 2017 06:20:18
Nicasio isn't mediocre. Under a .230 BAA induces a lot of ground balls. And has given up zero homeruns.

4.) 07 Jul 2017 15:58:28
His FIP is actually lower than his ERA which means you could argue he has been slightly unlucky.

5.) 07 Jul 2017 19:57:50
His xFIP stays relatively the same, yet gives up no home runs.
His BABIP goes down, but so does his K/ 9.

If anything, you could argue Nicasio has been unbelievably lucky this season.

Baltimore wouldn't give either guy for both players in that deal.

Rumor is that the Pirates would need to clear some salary in order to get Quintana. That's where the Yankees come in.

To Pirates: Quintana, Chance Adams

To Yankees: Tony Watson

To Chi Sox: Glasnow, Keller, Hayes, Albert Abreu.


1.) 24 Dec 2016 01:24:32
White Sox want hitting prospects, deal must be centered around Josh Bell.

2.) 24 Dec 2016 03:49:37
Actually not too bad but if I'm the Pirates I'm not giving up Glasnow and Keller.

3.) 24 Dec 2016 04:06:07
I seen one that was the Yankees getting mccutxhen and sending away Rutherford and andujar is that true or no I was curious I seen it the Brian belick posted so idk if it's true or false.

4.) 24 Dec 2016 04:22:37
This makes no sense for the Yankees.

5.) 24 Dec 2016 18:52:36
Bilek is just a troll account it's fake.

6.) 25 Dec 2016 01:04:16
Any criticism, Huskers?



22 Dec 2016 00:13:46
If I'm the ChiSox I look to move Quintana this offseason while his value is as high as it will be.

Pirates Get: Quintana

Sox get: Glasnow, Keller, Newman, and Steven Brault.


1.) 22 Dec 2016 13:28:29
Bucs need Quintana, and that would be a good haul for ChiSox.

2.) 22 Dec 2016 15:05:39
I didn't even see this when I replied to another post saying about the same package would be needed.



12 Dec 2016 04:31:22
Pirates get Quintana

White sox get Glasnow, Newman, Keller.


1.) 12 Dec 2016 13:35:43
I think Glasnow is untouchable.

2.) 12 Dec 2016 20:28:06
He isn't.

3.) 12 Dec 2016 20:35:39
UndeRpay from Pittsburgh. Major underpay.

4.) 12 Dec 2016 21:42:48
Not at all an underpay. Glasnow is one of the best prospects in the game and is almost MLB ready. Keller is young and completely dominated last year. Newman is has pop and will be MLB ready likely next season. Look what the Red Sox gave up for sale. It was significantly less than everyone thought especially on this site.

5.) 13 Dec 2016 00:11:48
They gave up Yoan Moncada, the #1 prospect in baseball for Chris Sale. Let's not pretend that the price was low.

Most scouts aren't that high on the Pirates' young guys. Pirates fans seem to think every one of their young guys is untouchable, or only tradeable for the best players.

I can't imagine this would even pique the White Sox' interest.

6.) 14 Dec 2016 01:41:12
Pirates need Newman, so sub Newman with either
1. Alen Hansen (pit #13 2B/ OF) and Kevin Kramer (pit #18 3B)
2. Nick Kingham (pit#10 RHP)

Pirates Trade: Mccutchen

Mets trade: Steven Matz, Hansel Robles, Gavin Cecchini

Resign IF/ OF Sean Rodriguez 3 yrs 21 Million

Pirates 2017 Lineup/ rotation

Cervelli C
Marte LF
Bell RF
Kang 3B
Polanco CF
Rodriguez 2B
Freese 1B
Mercer SS





1.) 06 Oct 2016 01:39:49
That trade is really really bad, Matz has yet to prove that he can stay healthy for a full season, Cutch is one of the best Ofs in the game with some control asking price will be higher than basically a Jurickson Profar pitcher and a couple of bums.

What do you guys think about the one game wild card format? Me being a pirates fan I would love to here some ideas on how the MLB can make it as fair as possible. Any thoughts?


1.) 28 Mar 2016 05:01:33
Win your division.

2.) 29 Mar 2016 19:07:18
What theJerk said, and who really cares. They are wildcard teams, they barely got in.

3.) 30 Mar 2016 02:55:09
How bout a best 2 out ot 3 series. The series would work its way up from best out of 3, then to 5, then to 7. It would give both teams a fair chnace and push team to stay in the race for the wildcard spot.

4.) 30 Mar 2016 19:32:47
Best 2 out of 3 would be even worse for the Wild Card team.

The series goes all three games. they have to overnight a flight, play the next day with a worn-down roster, and pitch their #4 starter in game 1.

It would be a far greater disadvantage to do a wild card series for the WC team.
