For the amount of money Huntington poured into the draft, there has been very little return so far. Unless you can get excited about guys in A ball.

This is how draft and develop works, if you get one quality regular per draft you are doing well.

I’m pretty sure Brock Holt showed he can hit and hit well, and I was happy to see his defense look good as well although not elite. Good impressive player. I’m a back surgery vet and although it greatly improved my daily life, I’ve not felt like I was back to fully healthy. I’m also not a professional athlete with professional physical therapists either though. I wish him the best and have my fingers crossed for a full recovery.

They built the academy in the DR and spent money in the draft and I thought……WOW! This front office is Really Serious about what they are doing and I argued on many web sites against people who may or may not have an agenda against Nutting that this team is moving forward with NH leading the way.
After watching Huntington go head to head with Scott Boros and losing their 1st rd pick last year I started to wonder what the hell Huntington was trying to prove ? I really think this guy is an ego maniac that is out to prove that he is smarter than everybody else in baseball. That is why he came up with the idea to draft Sanchez and a bunch of high school pitchers, spending millions and accomplishing NOTHING….!
.
This team is still years and years away from the only thing I wanted and that is for the …..PITTSBURGH PIRATES… to be a team that is respected in the baseball world….. I don’t expect the Pirates to go head to head with the Yankees and other big market teams every year but at least to gain respect as the Rays have done and the only way to do that is to have a leadership that understands where they are and leave their egos at the door.
Mr. Nutting open your eyes.
