Texas can’t go all in on pitching here and give up White, Leiter, etc. Pitt doesn’t need Jung unless they move him to 1st. But they’d be wise to take the most valuable chip they can and flip it for greater need. Jung has the advantage of fitting every team’s budget.
Pittsburgh has over played their hand.. they can keep Reynolds.. he’ll become a FA in a couple of years or traded at the deadline this year for pennies on the dollar… The Pirates should have moved him already..
None of us know what has been offered. As far as we know, they have been offered lowball garbage. Therefore you have no basis to say they have overplayed their hand. Further if he plays well in this first half a desperate team in the race at the deadline very well may pay up like the Mariners did for Castillo and the Padres did for Soto.
Disagree with this.. Bryan Reynolds is one of the highest rated position players in MLB.. a handful of players are rated higher and virtually every single one are never going to proclaim their desire to leave..
The Pirates have next to no chance at succeeding in their division..it’s time to create an environment where they can win and have talented players that let them get there.. It’s sad what the pirates and their fans have to go through…
So if Reynolds is as good as you say, then the Pirates are right to hold him for the offer they want.
I am a Pirate fan. The worst thing they can do is trade Reynolds away for a discount because he has asked for a trade. That would perpetuate losing not change it.
