Being reported that the Pirates are actively trying to trade Marte. Padres and Mets are showing most interest

PG reports other teams showing interest in Frazier and Musgrove. On trade with Toronto would bring back Reese McGuire. I don't know, I can sorta smell a desperation trade coming for a catcher.

Iíd like Austin Hedges from the Padres as part of that trade for Marte.

Pirates hire Tarik Brock as 1B coach. He has spent the past three seasons as the Dodgers minor league baserunning coordinator. Hope heís ready for the Polanco project.

Quote of the off-season already hahaha

anywho, I am a little concern with the lack of experience on the coaching staff but honestly what do I know?  The Pitching coach has some nice up and coming credentials.

Pirates sign a .245 batting av. free agent!  Not far from the Mendoza Line.  All field and no hit outfielder..how many games will he win/save with that glove?

Pirates settle 5 of 8 arbitration cases including Josh Bell (4.8M) and Trevor Williams. Kela, Musgrove and Frazier appear headed to arbitration. A little surprising about Bell since Boras is his agent.

In other news, the Pirates continue to do their usual off-season dumpster diving.

It is early yet but this offseason would be a disaster if this was March 10. They either need to essentially double payroll by signing free agents or they need to trade off Marte, Bell, Kela and Musgrove. Anything in the middle is dumb.

Astros got hammered for their cheating scandal.  Their GM and manager suspended for a year.  The team fined 5 million dollars and they lose first and second round picks in the 2020 and 2021 MLB Draft. 

It seems Red Sox manager Cora will be getting punished in the coming days as well as he was seen as the ring leader when he was in Houston.

Astros ownership just fired GM & manager.

BoSox HAVE to fire Cora....

MLB should provide a power point of today's events to Roger Goodell on how you handle CHEATING in your game.

This is great to see.

I also suspect Morton, Verlander, Cole and other pitchers were doing something to the baseball to increase spin rate and get more strikeouts.

This is the same GM who hacked into his former employer St. Louis database to get access to scouting reports. He should have been fired then.

I guess we will find out when Cole starts pitching for a different team this season and he falls off a cliff or at least regresses than all fingers will point to him cheating somehow or someway in the eyes of a lot of the fans

Hit the nail on the head on all points.

And yes this GM is a known cheater (not unlike Belichick).

Kind of hard to believe no one picked up on them banging on a trash can before every pitch. I saw a clip of some pitcher..calling out his catcher after looking toward the Houston Dugout. "hey, everytime I throw a curve some guy hits that trash can twice."  Don't you just love millionaire athletes?

Red Sox part ways with their manager Cora, who was apparently the ring leader of the whole thing in Houston.

This also apparently goes beyond banging as trash can as they were using technology to steal the signs.  Itís weird as stealing signs isnít a crime if you do it the way itís been done for 140 years: figure it out with your own eyes.  Using computers and apple watches is obviously above and beyond.
