Re: Official Game Thread - 4/9 - Bucs vs Tigers

Wow - Bednar needs to get things figured out pretty soon. Hard to watch him blow one save after another...

Re: JT Brubaker to the Yanks

This was the best article I found on the trade: https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/yankees-trade-for-pirates-former-opening-day-starter-in-latest-new-york-pittsburgh-deal/ We will see who the PTBNL is, but hopefully there is some possibility there (always hopeful). My guess it would be a young, lowe...

Re: 2024 Opening Day Roster

Really surprised that Wolf was the next guy off the 40-man. He seems to have some potential and is a starter - when we seem to have more relievers in the high minors than guys who can actually start and get through 5 or 6 innings. I kinda liked his potential. I think someone will grab him. I was pre...

Re: 2024 Official Spring Training Thread

Not sure what others think, but these 2 signings has given me more confidence about the Pirates upcoming season. With the young players like Skenes and Jones, and then you include Lauer, German, and possibly even Anderson to the existing group this team won’t be playing the final two months of the ...

Re: Game Day Thread - 2/29 - Bucs @ Orioles

Just watched a video of the Davis home run today, and he appears more solid than he was last season. He’s going to be a really good player. He’ll end up being a decent enough catcher because he’ll never stop working to improve. He’ll never be satisfied. As soon as Endy is healthy enough, they need ...

Re: 2024 Official OBN Predictions Thread

As defending champ I feel absolutely no pressure since I know that last year's numbers were based merely on wishful thinking. So why change? Since bucs607179 went with 84-78, which is where I probably would have gone, I better be one game better so 85-77 732 runs. My wish is to make the playoffs, an...

Re: Off Season Roster Discussion

Some of the issue may be that there are a number of pitchers at AAA who could be promoted this year and on the DL who presumably will be returning this year. They may not want to impede development by clogging the ML roster with average starters. Your point is valid. Pitchers such as Jones, and Ske...

Re: Off Season Roster Discussion

I bet Ben C. is just waiting for Kolton to get a little cheaper and will scoop him up. Possibly to play first and push Rowdy into a back up at first and DH. I am thinking Pittsburgh may wait until the prices go down and they will bring back Santana. There might be a few signings on the cheap side a...

Re: Off Season Roster Discussion

I watched Syndergaard during his time with the Phillies. He had absolutely nothing compared to his former abilities. Most pitchers come back from TJS at least as good as before, many even better. Not Noah. The Phils barely used him down the stretch and in their WS run, he was that unreliable. More ...
