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.
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.
