I ran out of time when I realized I left Coles name off the list but I did not have Marte own there.

I think teams like Oakland, Detroit and even St. Louis would disagree with you about pitching not winning playoff games.

Upside will get managers fired. The same thing you guys are saying about Marte is the same thing that was said about Tabata once Huntington locked him up in a team friendly contract.

To get Price even for just a season in a half I would trade anyone except Cutch, Martin, Walker and Polanco.

I understand everything you are saying but adding Price would have been worth it in my opinion.
Commented on Thoughts on the Pirates and the trade deadline on Jul 31 2014, 7:32p - 1 reply
You talk like losing Marte is a huge loss and it isn't with having Harrison to plug right in there. You can slide Polanco to left and Harrison in right and this team wouldn't miss him.

No the real losers are not the Rays its us because Huntington could have easily beaten what they got for Price.

ITS SO frustrating being a Pirate fan with how this franchise chooses to operate. I don't buy we are a small market so we have to watch the payroll BS.

Agree completely about Russell Martin. He is the second most important Pirate behind Cutch but I don't see this front office paying him market value which is 12-14 mill over 3 years or so.

Everything you mentioned about Dame is on point and accurate and yes when outsiders think about Blazer basketball Dame is the first name that pops up because of that shot that knocked out the Rockets. That shot has become legend and I will never forget it

Without a question LA is the face of this franchise but Lillard will be knocking on that door sooner than later.

I thought that we had his Bird rights which would allow us to go over the cap to bring him back?

What bothers me about not bringing him back is the effect he could have had off the bench.
Commented on Reports: Timberwolves Agree To Sign UFA G Mo Williams on Jul 29 2014, 2:32a
Maybe this means that Huntington is looking at moving Marte to Seattle. I can't think of any other reason why the team would be looking at bringing Byrd back.

The whole reason he opted out was he was looking to get a 3 year deal whether here or Dallas or wherever.

Bringing back Mo had nothing to do with him making up his mind, the issue was him wanting a multi year contract.

I believe the only way Blake plays a lot is because of a injury. I just don't like the idea of him backing up Dame. Blake is pretty much a 3 point specialist right now and nothing more.

Why would he not get 20 minutes a game? Better yet who do you think will get minutes in front of Barton? The starters can only play so many minutes a nigh.

Burfict is turning into a superstar right before our eyes. I think he is the best WLB in the game and how he went undrafted is beyond me.

I disagree about it being a tall order. Look no further than the 5 game series versus the World Champion Spurs when Barton averaged 9 points a game while averaging only 16 minutes a game.

I think both CJ and Bartons minutes will come down to how many minutes Blake plays this year.

Batum and his offense doesn't have anything to do with Rolo because you can count on one hand the offensive plays ran for him.

He must be talking about Boy George because Paul George is a borderline superstar regardless of whatever stats you throw out and Batum is nowhere close to having the talent he has.

If we can't play defense and we can't by the way the next best thing is to try and outscore teams. I don't like this blueprint but its all we have right now.
