Pirates Unreasonable about Nady and Marte?

Saturday, July 19, 2008

Word is circling around the MLB that the Pirates are making unreasonable demands regarding their most prized assets, Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte, as the trade deadline nears. The New York Post cited one front office executive saying the Pirates demands were "exorbitant". With top prospects being held out of most deals not involving star players, the Pirates will be hard pressed to pry away any blue chippers for either Nady or Marte.

The Pirates are doing what every team does, get the most for your prised vets. Nady and Marte will not get you two top prospects, Bay might get you one, but not two. The pirates will be at the bottom of the NL for years to come, they dont scout or develope well. Bad franchise.

I don't understand why people don't like Xavier Nady. I'll take a guy who is hitting .320+ 12hr and 50+ rbi's anyday.
