Default Re: Nady and Marte Traded to the Yankees

Not a good trade on paper. They traded the right two players, but they didn't get enough value in return. I'm guessing during those goodbye hugs Nady's teammates were probably saying; "good luck, and I wish I was going with you." Of course, a team can always luck out. Maybe one of those pitchers will turn out to be an all-star. Then again, these are the Pirates and they only have one kind of luck.

Finally, maybe it is time to stop blaming countless GM after GM when we all know where the real problem is - Ownership. Oh please, Mr. Druckenmiller, you would be an instant hero in the burgh.
