They gambled on Jose just like they gambled $60M on Cutch. Now the deal with Cutch is literally the best contract in baseball.

Until Jose decides he can stay on the field for more than a couple weeks in a row, he’s just not going to be reliable enough to put up any kind of consistent production.

I just wish maybe the Pirates could get another 2010 like season or two out of him.

Tabata will probably never justify it, but the Pirates were betting on Tababta reaching his ceiling. The deal was so ridiculously team friendly that his agent quit after he signed. I mean could you imagine Marte signing something like that right now? It just wouldn’t happen.

At this point, Tabata is what he is, and with Polanco right around the corner, that’s a 4th OF. Maybe someone to PH or pitch run late in games. Some teams might even want him as a starter, so you might get some value out of him, but that’s about it.

I don’t see any reason to bash NH about it though is all

My understanding is that a player on the DL can be replaced by any player in the organization as of the 31st. This is why I was asking for a good write up of all the loop holes associated with the playoff eligibility. James will deliver one in the near future from what I’ve been told. Looking forward to it.

Keeps more options in play.
