Default 2013-2014 Pittsburgh Pirates Off-Season Thread

Clint Hurdle named 2013 NL Manager of the Year.

Andrew McCutchen receives 2013 NL MVP award.

Pedro Alvarez (3B) and Andrew McCutchen (OF) win Silver Slugger Awards.



Boy, it's great to see the Pirates take home some hardware! Makes me feel good as a fan. Also points out their season was VERY meaningful - outside of just having a winning year and making the playoffs. I love the fact they had a winning season, made the playoffs. But also realize, my fellow fans, that the Pirates had a winning record at PNC Park for just the second time in its existence. They also won 50+ home games... AWESOME!!!

Discuss the off-season here. Pirates have important and interesting moves to make.

Marlon Byrd signed with the Phillies this week. AJ Burnett may return. Pirates also may/may not exercise the option on Wandy Rodriguez. I believe in the neighborhood of $12-$14 M.... worth it or not?

I'm so very proud of our guys. It was an amazing season. Bummed Byrd signed with the Philthies.

I concur. Byrd was a catalyst to a lot of scoring rallies and clutch hits by the Pirates. Pittsburgh may miss him next year. On the other hand I heard the Phillies overpaid for him... $8M a year (I believe)? Too much for him. Hopefully this is another move by a big market, trying to throw mud on the wall and hope it sticks, that doesn't pan out.

It's a sad day for all female Bucco fans. Why, you ask? Well, Garrett Jones was DFA'd today from the Pirates. Why is this sad? Because I think he's one of the most beautiful men in baseball. He couldn't play defense too well, nor could he throw to second without hitting the runner or throwing into center field, but he sure is nice to look at.

Too bad for Jones. He had some great moments in 2012, but never really solidified himself as a reliable full-time starting position player.
