Thank you, Pittsburgh

Starling Marte to Arizona for a couple Single-A guys. What?! Arizona has put together a very respectable farm system, and Pittsburgh couldn't pry loose any of their top-100 guys??

I am very impressed with Arizona. They have managed to restock their minors without doing a full-on teardown that would have required them to be terrible for 3-5 years. They aren't going to compete with LA, but the team as it stands right now is in decent shape to talk about a wild card spot. And they have plenty of good young players to start bringing up in the next year or so, too. It isn't quite the Cubs/Astros/White Sox model of rebuilding, but it might work.

(someone from the AZ front office needs to contact me about buying the rights to "Super Marte Bros." I claim it in the name of SchnauzerFace.)

Pittsburgh also traded Austin Meadows and Tyler Glasnow for the rotting corpse of Chris Archer

Marte is so overrated. The Pirates won the trade.

The Pirates payroll is now 43 million dollars, Mike Trout makes 37 million. The only winner in this trade is Robert Nutting the owner of the pirates....

It's a MARTE PARTE!
