Oneil Cruz is going to be fun to watch over the next 10+ years

Getting loss #100 in a game that they blew a 7-3 lead in is the most 2022 Pirates thing ever. Well, maybe other than getting it in a 15-2 loss.

You knew the Reds were gonna lose 15-2 today for #100?

Wherever. I'm sure Pittsburgh fans would love to keep him, if the front office is willing to pay. But literally wherever he goes/stays - he will be fun to watch.

That was rather uncanny. I was thinking about how we've lost 6 times this year by a dozen or more runs, but wasn't expecting the Reds to actually pull off that score to get to 100. Now I just have to spend time wondering why I can't use those mad psychic skills to make money and get depressed about it...

That's simple. The majority of what he is contracted for, he'll be with the Pirates (at least up until the point where they figure they'll "maximize" (ie: fuck up) their gains for him. After that, since he's named after Paul O'neal, that leaves two options.

1. If he pans out and is the player people hope he can be, the Yankees will open up the wallet for him.

2. If he winds up just another guy, he'll go to Cincinnati  to be a complementary piece.

If we're being fair, it isn't quite as bad as "they give everyone away" (although they basically do).

I've never heard of Heredia, so he must not have made an impact of any sort. Harold Ramirez...I'm not sure he ever made the bigs with Pittsburgh. On the other hand, that trade pissed me off because it was them being so desperate to dump Liriano's salary that they traded two prospects (Ramirez and Reece McGuire) with him to get a nobody who didn't do anything. Anderson, Quintana and Vogelbach were vets signed to one-year contracts where there's basically an agreement that if the team isn't going anywhere, they'll be traded to contenders if they have any value to them. And Chavez is old as hell and has probably been with about half the teams in MLB at some point.

Then again, enough of the rest had/have me angry as hell at the horrible job the front office runs the team that even ignoring all the ones I mentioned doesn't really make anything particularly better.

It'll be nice to see Cutch in the proper uniform again, even if he's past his prime. I just hope this isn't some weakass attempt by the front office to try to gain some fan goodwill, so it stings less when they trade Reynolds for some vague assortment of prospects.
