Politics And Current Events

The argument from the start has been "**** you libtards, USA! USA! USA!", and the idiot mainstream press clinging to morsels of potential good faith in the **** you libtards argument, which then allowed something as obvious as John Bolton asserting that the sky is blue and his mustache is in fact th...

2019-2020 Pittsburgh Pirates Off-Season Thread

Yes. It's going to be an ugly 3 years. Attendance of 8000, 100 losses. Top 3 picks. Whatever. If the alternative is going 75-87 and never improving the outlook, I'll take a repeat of 2008-2012 for a chance of doing 2013-2016 correctly. Basically means my spring and summer arent quite as busy for th...

Good rebuild trade, Pirates are also sending some money and getting international bonus money in the deal. As for 2020, the lineup is now officially a disaster, the prime objectives I believe for this season are securing a top 2021 draft pick and rehabbing the values for Polanco and Archer so they ...

2019-2020 Pittsburgh Pirates Off-Season Thread

MLB has these guys ranked 9th and 18th, Fangraphs 5th and 10th.
The MLB ranking would have been from mid 2019 I believe, the fangraphs is from this winter.

Not that it means anything, but I would probably have the SS 5th behind Keller, Hayes, Cruz and Thomas.

Malone was on the scouting radar for awhile, standing out in North Carolina for his clean, quick arm speed and above-average breaking ball. For his draft year, he transferred to IMG Academy in Florida and took another step forward, reminiscent of how Touki Toussaint added feel elements to his profi...

Aside from the semi-frequent body comps we issue to give readers a better idea of what a player looks like physically, we tend to shy away from making overall comparisons between prospects and current or former big leaguers unless it’s very apt. We have one here in Liover Peguero, who is a Jean Seg...

If Bolton came in under Oath and said, sorry guys, I'm under Oath now, the truth is, in the conversations I heard, Trump didn't do what he is being accused of. I was just trying to sell books.

Here's my problem with all this. I don't know what happened. Gun to head I'm going to lean the direction of what was most likely said. If a senator in this instance with a D or R attached to their name was for/against Bolton when he was in the White House, why should that change now? Why should Dem...

For example, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged privately that there was no basis to claims by the president’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani that the ambassador to Ukraine was corrupt and believed Mr. Giuliani may have been acting on behalf of other clients, Mr. Bolton wrote.

So is there anything to stop Bolton from just coming out and saying whatever it is he wants to say? Bolton is a republican before anything else. I don’t think he’s going to come out and do anything against what the party leaders want. Thus why he was willing to ignore the house subpoena, while sayi...
