I don't believe the Pirates are contenders this year, SORRY COONELLY. It is OK to develop young talent, but not OK to trade them off when they get good. Your playing a game with the loyal Pirate fans.
You have had the best picks for many years because of your dismal finishes. You should be ASHAMED at your results! You also have to spend some money if you really care about competing. With what you have shown me, the only way you are going to get to first place is if all the teams leave your division and you are the only team in the division. Sorry for being so cynical, but you made me that way. The management is the problem!!!

Fielder and Pujols are now in the AL. Braun has a 50-game suspension.
The Pirates will be able to contend in an otherwise weak NL Central Division.
