I'm not a fan of trading McCutchen or Harrison.

 

Yeah, the Pirates will eventually trade McCutchen, thus is the way of the small-market team in the Majors. There's little point in selling when his stock is at an all-time low. Give him a season to bounce back, then make a move next year. It makes way more sense.

 

Honestly though, moving McCutchen makes more sense than moving Harrison. The Pirates don't need to lose another starting position player. At least if McCutchen is traded they can easily move Marte to CF. If they trade Harrison, who's going to replace him? Alen Hanson? Adam Frazier? I like both players, but as utility guys, neither are capable starters at least this point in their careers.

 

The only possible move would be to move Kang to 2B then have Freese as your starting 3B, but even then it's a downgrade. Keep them both, the Pirates have luxury items like Freese as a bench player but don't have the basics like a solid pitching staff. Once they acquire a solid third starting pitcher then they can focus on other aspects. Defense and pitching is what screwed them over last season.

They could use a good closer. Watson is spotty at best.  When he's on no one can hit him.  When he's off even Morganna can hit him.

 

FWIW Sean Rodriguez got a nice payday in Atlanta.

How mad do you bros think Pirates fans calling The Fan are going to be if the Pirates get Victor Robles, Joe Ross and Reynaldo Lopez?

 

Also how mad do you think they'll be when McCutchen has an 8 WAR over the next three seasons after they whined about how the Pirates should trade him?

The Pirates resigned Nova last week brohs.  Maybe there is hope. He'll probably end up sucking for the next 3 years.

It's a solid signing, hopefully they can acquire Quintana.

 

They probably still wouldn't be able to compete with the Cubs, but a rotation of Cole, Quintana, Taillon, Nova and Kuhl is a pretty solid rotation. Definitely would put them in position to at least contend with the Cubs and put them in a Wild Card spot.

They should make a new ride at kennywood called jung ho's ride home.

You will put on beer goggles and drive a bumper car through a course that looks like south korea. When you wreck you have to get out and run. They could have a cop chase you and if he catches you then you don't have to show up to spring training.

Lol they could sub title it "the real reason the pirates where able to sign him away from the Yankees"

Or would that be Korea-phobic since he isn't white?

If Kang messes up one more time he's going to jail for 8 months in Korea, bros.

 

My question is since most of them are androgynous, which ones dress up like girls?

It looks like Glasnow won't make the team, bros.

 

If I had to guess, the rotation will probably be Cole, Taillon, Nova, Kuhl and Hutchison.
