But NH has had a boner for Wandy for a couple of years. It looks as if they gave up too much to get him now at least

It’s a nice round number and we will get a better draft pick. Only 10.5 games out of a top 10 pick to go with the 9th pick we already have. I’m greatful for the 4 months of good ball the Pirates gave us and I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel especially if things work out with Cole, Taillon, and a couple of the other pitchers. Hope the young guys continue to mature and we can get some legitimate bats somehow. Hope that light at the end of the tunnel isn’t a train though.

There is no argument to be made for his defense any longer, he been playing attrocious defensively. Mercer has been starting to hit better and was his defense really that much less than Barmes’ when Barmes is at his best? I know Mercer’s defense is better than what Barmes is playing recently.

We should just be happy if we have a plus 500 season and cross our fingers for the next. Pedro just pick the ball up and throw the freaking PITCHER out. Their D stinks right now and its costing games!

You’d think he’d want to make light of Morris being the only salvageable piece of the Bay trade. Here’s to hoping this pick-up goes more Resop than Qualls.
