Your last few sentences perfectly sum up my nervousness around the whole Burnett issue. I also fear for first base.

Mark Madden just flipped out about the AJ Burnett news on the DVE morning show. Basically, he was saying that the Pirates won't bring him back because he costs too much, that the Nutting/Coonelly crew doesn't care about winning (just profits) and that the Pirates PR used Burnett's and Hurdle's disagreement over starting Game 5 of the NLDS to turn the public against Burnett and ease his departure from the team. It was one of the most cynical tirades I have ever listened to, but a part of me that has been watching the Bucs for the past 20 years worries he may be right. Was the 2013 season all a dream?

Great analysis as always, Pat. I agree with fasicad though, I want the Pirates to be perennial contenders and I think trading away Tallion and Polanco puts that in jeopardy.

Hah, love the remark about Karstens.  I spent most of last season trying to figure out why he had been so effective.  Hope he can eat some innings tonight, and that the Buccos will wake up the bats!
