Looks like they are already punting on 2022 and banking on starting their next short window of opportunity in 2023.

Looks like they are trying to dump Reynolds now. It'll be a mlb team composed of triple A and double A players I guess. They'll lose more than they did last year. Too bad they can't force Nutting to sell the team. Picksburgh deserves better.

I honestly think Cherington has done a good job opening a window of competitive baseball starting possibly 2023, probably 2024

Absolute steal of a contract if Hayes lives up to his potential.

And they will f u c k Reynolds
It's been so long since I followed the Bucs, I don't even know the names of their best players. Heck I don't know who is managing the team. Back in the day when Leyland was manager and for awhile afterwards I was a rabid fan, now after years of nothing, I gave up. Cutch did bring a spark back for a short while.

There is some potential coming up through the system, with Contreras being called up, but much of it is still a couple years away. We could see Oneil Cruz on a permanent basis by this summer.

Getting Hayes signed long term was important. If he reaches his potential, they're getting him at a bargain for awhile.He's going to have to be the player they build around, as I do not see Reynolds being around much longer.

Hopefully, Hayes can be their next McCutchen and they can put enough talent around him to compete for a few years like they did in 2013-2015.

Reynolds signing a two year contract probably does not change much big picture.

They could still very well trade him this summer, if a team were to offer the right pitching prospects, as they're not contending for the division anytime soon.

Pirates get to .500, are playing at home, have only played 8 games, and Sheldon sits our million dollar players Reynolds and Hayes. WTF??? These guys need a break already??

One of the worst losses in MLB history.

Don't let the decent start fool you, this is a really bad team, though there are some reasons for optimism in the minors.

This is the only sign of optimism for the Pirates.

Bucs in the midst of blowing it in the 9th. Up 4-3, runners at 2nd and 3rd, one out. This probably isn’t going to end well.

Bednar struck out Contreras, two outs. Gonna intentionally walk Happ to load the bases.

Bednar has a ******* cannon. Struck out Schwindel to end it.
