For today, let's put aside whether you think the Pirates are legitimate playoff contenders this season. Let's think beyond that and look at their farm system...which, at present, doesn't appear to be loaded with prospects. That being said, no matter how much he means to the Pirates now, and knowing that they probably won't re-sign him after 2018, is it best to trade Andrew McCutchen to begin re-stocking the Pirates organization?
With that in mind, is it time we evaluate the drafting of Neal Huntington? Given the financial limitations placed on him, how do you rate him on drafting since he took over in the 2008 draft? Let's leave trades/free agent signings out of the equation for the time being. Kent Tekulve joins me at 12:30 to talk about the Bucs.
Chances are Jordan Staal won't be coming back to the Penguins. But let's say there's a chance. What would you be willing to give up to get him? You're playing the role of GMJR, so be reasonable. We'll get Mark Madden's opinions at 1:30.
