Comments on: Revisiting the Trades of the Last Few Years Part 1 http://www.piratesprospects.com/2011/07/revisiting-the-trades-of-the-last-few-years-part-1.html Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Now Marte also got hurt but came back in 2009 to be a key reason why the yanks beat Philly in the world series.  He essentially neutralized Ryan Howard.  Karstens showed promise when he pitched for the yankees.  As a life long yankees fan my closest friends also know i follow the Pirates for one reason.  They were the childhood team of my hero Roberto Clemente.  I wish Tabata hits 50 homers and Karstens wins 20 games.

He’s having a down year, but that trade was hardly a slam dunk until recently.

It would be like giving someone else $100 to invest, and THEY turn it into $1000. You didn’t really do much there, did ya?

And really?  He doesn’t get credit for the trades because the players were added by Littlefield?  So who gets credit?  Because Littlefield got those guys by trading guys that Bonifay acquired.  As Ryan mentioned below, you give credit to what the GM did with the trade chips.

I’m not sure what drugs you are taking, but next time make sure to lace them with ‘logic powder’

So really d’arnaud and pedro and his waiver wire pickups are the only players huntington can get full 100% credit for obtaining. ps sticking with russell and kerriagan for as long as he did was also
