ESPN did their annual fan misery index.

Out of 123 professional sports franchises Pirates ranked at 26.

Steelers 112 and Penguins 121 to put it into perspective.

Pirates avoid arbitration with Dickerson and Kela and agree on one year deals with both.

Dickerson 1 year $8.5 million. Kela 1 year I think that it was $3.75 million.

Just left the Rivers casino where you can place a bet on the Pirates to win the 2019 World Series at 66-1 odds.

That doesn't seem high enough, so...

Reports are that the Pirates and Dodgers are discussing a possible trade with Marte doing to LA.  The Pirates payroll is around $71 million or so and perhaps they feel this is too high, so dump Marte and his (relatively cheap) salary too I guess. 

People keep wanting a salary cap for baseball.  I want a salary floor.

I'll have to check Rivers Casino and see if there will be an over/under bet on how many people show up to PNC park to watch the Pirates this season. I'll bet the under
