Pirates All Un-Traded Team

With the trade deadline coming up this Friday we have compiled what we are calling a Pirates All Un-Traded Team. Basically we have compiled what we feel would be the roster that the Pirates could have if they never traded or failed to sign anyone ever.  More accurately if the Pirates only made deals that would still be benefiting them at this time.  Many hours were spent by our team of statisticians and clairvoyant experts in compiling this team. Only active players were eligible.

Starting Pitchers

Zach Duke

Óliver Pérez

Tim Wakefield

Paul Maholm

Bronson Arroyo


Matt Capps

John Grabow

Ross Ohlendorf

Jeff Karstens

Sean Burnett

Damaso Marte

Joe Beimel


Jason Kendall

Ryan Doumit


Garrett Jones

Freddy Sanchez

Jack Wilson

Aramis Ramírez

Craig Wilson

Pokey Reese


Jason Bay

Nate Mclouth

Andrew McCutchen

Barry Bonds

Manager & Coaches

Jim Leyland Manager

Lloyd McClendon Batting Coach

Joe Kerrigan Pitching Coach

Andy Van Slyke First Base Coach

Gene Lamont Third Base Coach

Jeff Jones Bullpen Coach

Rafael Belliard Coach

Tony Beasley Coach

I know Tony Beasley is a bit of a stretch but he is awesome!

By our estimates this team would have a record of 73 – 27 by this point in the season.

One final note Kris Benson’s wife, Anna, would also still be part of the organization, maybe GM.
