I see nothing being done to address that.

The McClatchy/Littlefield era is irrelevant to this discussion, since management is completely different now. And earlier this week, I showed that the major league team is not regressing much under Huntington, despite the fact that every deal has been focused on the future.

In addition, the Pirates have included cash in a few of their deals. Just because a familiar player is traded for prospects does not automatically make it a salary dump.

We are also putting a nice spin on what is simply a salary dump, especially
