    I know the odds of a blockbuster trade are very unlikely, but I think Arizona matches up well. Trumbo is miscast as a LF in their lineup. I think Alvarez, Gaby, Tabata, Luis Heredia, Casey Sadler,...

    I am really interested to see what Neal decides to do at 1st Base this off-season. I believe that most people in here would like to see Mike Napoli or James Loney of the free agents available. If...

    I think a lot of what the Pirates do this offseason depends on what they want to do in Right Field. Do they sign a stop gap player till Gregory Polanco gets here, or do they sign an impact player to...

    Based on years of control, Melancon for Hanrahan straight up is a win for the Pirates. I think Melancon might be a little bit of a head case that was intimidated by being in the AL East. Getting back...

    I like mock drafts as much as anyone, but it's pretty early for this. That said, I'm really hoping Kris Bryant drops to #9. Realistically, I'd like to get Bobby Wahl and Colin Moran or Justin...

    I know I don't post very often and when I do, they are usually silly trade and signing proposals. I look at the threads a few times a week and it's good to view the opinions of die hard Bucco fans....

    Jeremy Guthrie just got 3yrs 25mil from the Royals. The Royals certainly didn't do us any favors setting the market for a lower tier starting pitcher, just like the Dodgers signing of Brandon League...

    Hypothetically with Machado playing so well in Baltimore, what would it take to get JJ Hardy? He has the defense Barmes has or better, and has the bat to hit 2nd in our lineup.

    I'd like to see the Bucs make a couple of moves to improve the roster and I agree with Nickster that Neal is going to be a little more aggressive with his job on the line this off season. I agree...

    There are a lot of people who think the Buc's need to get a bat and I agree. I just don't think we need a thumper in the middle of the lineup. I believe if we get get a hitter capable of getting on...

    RTL, I like Youkilis too, but this isn't the same guy the Sox had 5 years ago. His OBP and HR's have gone down each of the past 5 years. I'm not saying he isn't a good ball player anymore, because he...

    I probably should have done my homework before putting McPherson in there. I didn't know about his injuries, just his ranking in Pirates Prospects. In that case, I'd put Jeff Locke or Rudy Owens in...

    It's been a few days since anyone has posted here and I know the offense is getting better, but how about a "crazy trade" with the Twins to really jumpstart this offense:

    I think that the biggest move the Pirates need to make is to get rid of hitting coach Gregg Ritchie. Matt Diaz and Lyle Overbay were decent hitters before joining the Bucs and have resumed hitting...

    It seems like a long time ago, but before the season started Devin Marrero was a consensus top 3 pick. Last year, his bat along with great glove and ability to stick at SS led to him being a top 3...

    Hahaha, fair enough. I just think that you have to look at it like 6.5 mil a year is not going to "break the bank." The Buc's projected payroll is still pretty low (around 45-mil?), right? I think...

    Can we just wait till June or July before we call this trade a success or failure? Maybe he gets hit like crazy and loses 10 games in the 1st half or maybe he wins 8 or 9 games and has a 3 something...

    I would love to see the Buc's sign Carlos Pena. I think a platoon of Pena and Nick Evans would be very productive on offense and stellar on defense. Hopefully Pedro puts it together this year and...

    Hopefully Neal will send Gustavo Nunez to the Padres to complete the Ryan Ludwick trade and we don't have to worry about carrying him on the roster all season.

    Jason Jaramillo was DFA to make room for Bedard on the 40 man roster. Looks like Michael McKenry is the clear front runner for the back up catcher spot.

    It's refreshing to see the Bucco's making moves now as oppossed to waiting till January and picking up the scraps. Hope Neal and Co. keep it going.
