It would be a difficult deal but I agree because Brown will likely be an All-Star level OF for the next decade.

Is your inclusion of Marte in this “deal” influenced by the progress of the lower level OFs who might have similar or higher ceiling as Marte?  Grossman, Polanco, Garcia, Osuna, Vasquez, and Fortunato …

This list isn’t even including the recent signees (Ramirez and Escobar), and the soon-to-be-signees (Bell and Brown).

First even if the Phils crumble and add Brown into the Pence deal the Astros are going to want a kings ransom for him. Aand if we were going to trade one of our so called “elite” prospects it wont be Taillion, maybe Allie plus a couple other lower level guys. Second, the Pirates are too darn narrow minded to have thoughts like that.They want to maximize profits. Not make this team better. Mark my words, and you can quote me, the pirates are going to wait till after the Phils clobber us the next few days, because we just cant hit with them, in fact it may get ugly, then within a few days after the deadline they will start dealing away folks like Corriea, Overbay(no big loss btw), Doumit and probably Diaz too. Then they will come and tell us ” Well we did the best we could, the price was just too high, better luck next year” and we all will eat it up and say thanx for the memories. Not me I know con when I see it. They had this all planned out back when we were getting close to the top probably back in mid May. Oh wait wasnt that when Nutting and Huntington came out and said ” We are going to get these guys some help. Just keep comming out and supporting us and we will do it” No thats not word for word but pretty close. Nutting is a businessman not a baseball guy, he saw a chance to make more money and he took it. String em along string em along then wait till its too late. Then spin it just right and CHACHING!!! MoMoney MoMoney MoMoney!!! Come on guys wake up and smell the coffee. This management team will never, AND i DO MEAN NEVER let this team get good cause it costs just too much money. I know what your gonna say, conspiracy theororist blah blah blah, but if you think about it, it makes sence. Just think about it Bucco Nation . Dont be marks
