I totally agree. Nady was most definitely part of that core and a huge part of the success of the Pirates offense this season. A total boneheaded move by the Pirates and though I will miss the X Man terribly, he is going to a team that is usually a contender (blech) and leaving an organization that has proven time and time again over the last decade + to be a pretender.
