I'd like to return to the topic stated in the title by asking this question: who will be the next Pirate traded, and why? For bonus credit?, suggest the return. I'll begin.

Chad Kubl started on 2021 opening day. He's only controlled for one more year, so he probably won't be a part of the 2023 rebound. I would trade him for the best available prospect not Rule 5 eligible before 2024.

We can use the roster spot and fellow posters have hinted that Kuhl wants out..


I don't see Kuhl as part of the future, either, but he may still be here up until the Deadline next July.  If BC can't get a decent enough return for him in the offseason, he might keep him in hopes Kuhl has a good start in '22 and increases his value.


If what you say happens Doc, I sure as heck hope that Kuhl does not pull a Gregory Polanco and stink to high heavens.  It would be nice if he pulls a Tyler Anderson and returns prospects as SyrBucco suggests. 
On the other hand what if he is blocking a good Rule 5 eligible prospect from remaining in the organization. 
Neither situation takes into account what the new CBA will do to roster management.


That's a really good point.  That's why the CBA negotiation is going to be so interesting this time around.  I hope we have some good discussion about it as it's ongoing and information is leaking to the public.

Howard was claimed off waivers a couple days after Huntington was fired SB (when Graves was in charge temporarily).

Thanks. I was going by the date of the transaction, which was before BC was hired. Didn't realize the gap was so wide between the two.

I expect Gamel to be the Pirates LF in 2022


unless he is the right fielder. The Bucs pretty much have to bring him back.

If Yoshi is signed and Moran is still here i would expect him to be in right and possibly platoon him with Alford if he his still here

I predict that Moran never again dons the Pirates uni.  Mark it down.

He doesn't have a lawn- just a sidewalk painted green

The mods saw what they had.  Not on the 25 man roster anymore.  Some LMG poster got called up.  They're resting him, I guess.

But he's taking more swings, which are offset by not putting out, so his scores have actually stayed the same.

Not only has the thread gone off tangent, but so has the OP, as things turn out.  The police will have a field day.

That is a surprise. They said there were philosophical differences between him and the GM.

It's more than nifty that we won more than fifty.

He looks like Milton from "Office Space". He'll probably keep showing up to work, even though he isn't getting paid. The Loo is absolute genius here.

There were!  I have inside sources and they gave me the tape.  Here's the transcriptions.

GM:  I saw what we had and my philosophy is we should have won the division.

Shildt:  I think I'll call Ben Cherington.
