Wish the team had resigned Bastardo. That's a big loss.

I'm really disappointed in the Pirates offseason.They lost Walker, Bastardo and Alvarez plus Burnett and Ramirez retired.

The players that they've traded for or signed are not that good.Sure they couldn't afford to sign a big name free agent for Chris Davis type money, but there were deals out there that they passed on.

I was hoping for a decent trade to bring a first baseman back. It hasn't happened and Josh Bell hasn't shown the power or defense to play first base in the near future.

The bullpen is another area where they should've added. I do believe that Glasnow will be the real deal and help the starting rotation, but the others from the farm system have major question marks.

Last year may have been their last chance to compete, because they didn't make the moves this offseason to set up talent for the near future.My expectations for this year are low... real low.

When they let Alvarez go for nothing, they were letting us know.

Corey Luebke is one signing that I'm behind. What happened to him recently? He must have been hurt, hasn't been in the majors for awhile.

Glad that they didn't trade cutch.Maybe he'll realize that if he wants out so badly that giving full effort will increase his trade value.

His lack of effort last year rubbed off on Polanco and it was sad to watch them play.

Hopefully he gives full effort and they can trade him for top prospects that want to play....

The Nats prospects that were being offered and requested by the Pirates are grossly over ranked. The nats knew they were over ranked and traded two of them to the Whitesox.The Whitesox think they made out well in that trade, but they didn't.

They did on the Sale trade with the Redsox though...

Nova and Hudson signings ok.... They don't need to trade top prospects to the Whitesox for a .500 pitcher.

Especially Ga boy Meadows.... or any of their young pitchers.
