I imagine the Cubs would love to get some of that salary off their hands.

A perfect trade would package in Rizzo to play 1st. Giving us a lineup 1-5 of Marte, McCutchen, Soriano, Rizzo, Alverez. That’d be beefy for a playoff run, but might be unobtainable.

He gets great jumps on the ball.

Meaning- 30-45 days. I think de jesus and Harrison are likely to get a permanent bench spot based on their play in AAA. I would like to see de jesus since we haven’t had a look at him, and we already know what Harrison can/can’t do. I like having snider on the bench, he’s been clutch in bench situations late in games, and it seems like Tabata is coming back full tilt right now. Jones literally is having the least productive of any of his seasons right now- I see him getting hot at least in terms of a power surge here soon. Don’t fret guys

I love that the Pirates are winners, but hate how many know it all Steeler fans it has brought back to the game of baseball. Especially when they had given up on the team 19 years ago and have zero idea how baseball works. They are the ones screaming collapse. The Pittsburgh radio stations are flooded with collapse talk and trade recommendations that make zero sense. Yesterday it was A. Meadows for J. Bautista or the best being McCutchen for Stanton straight up, and then bring Polonco up to play LF. The reason? McCutchen is over paid and can’t hit for power anymore. I guess this is the trade off of the Pirates being winners, and guess what? I would take it all day long.

They can get better offensive production from Josh Harrison. Snider is not hitting right handed pitching, so what’s the point?

I don’t want to give up top prospects but given the team’s pitching and overall record, it’s easy to understand why fans would love to see Stanton in a bucs uniform.
