Aren't baseball draft picks something like the least-sure bet in pro sports drafting?
biggest power hitters they've had at the position since Willie Stargell left are Garrett Jones, Adam LaRoche, Kevin Young, Jeff King and Jason Thompson.
I hope the Pirates win the World Series and still get this "competitive balance pick."
I appear to be in the minority in acknowledging that the 2012 Pirates are not good enough to make a playoff run.
You mean exactly like the Cardinals?
So what you're saying is, trading for a first baseman with a OPS+ of 48 is bad. But if he were to somehow become as good as he was in 2010 and 2011, trading for him might be good.
Well, Jason Thompson was good for awhile. The rest couldn't have cracked the lineup of the Lumber Company
There's no such thing as "not good enough to make a playoff run" IMO. All it takes is a few hot weeks and anyone with enough talent to make the playoffs has enough talent to do that.
