They aren’t going to sit Polanco, and they aren’t going to trade him. He’s being “paid” greatly by Pittsburgh Nutting standards, so he’s going to play.
But...does everyone remember several seasons ago when this board was ablaze over starting the season with Polanco in AAA, when he was the obvious missing link to a Pirates World Series appearance?

Bob Nutting showed me something when he dumped Frankie's salary by trading away prospects.
Note: Another Frankie is now the top paid Pirate - Cervelli.

If you're the Nut, why not package Meadows with Cervelli and J-Hay and cut about 1/4 of your payroll?
I'm sure we could get some more pitchers because, according to NH, you can't have too much pitching.
I'm thinking some A-ball dudes that can throw about 95 because nobody can throw 95 anymore -- they throw 100 today.

Plus, think about all NH could do with all that "financial flexibility." Probably could throw a party for all the scouts as a reward for all their good work finding guys like Meadows to tease the fans with the next 5-year plan, you know. Of course, NH wouldn't want to spoil them -- maybe only charge them 50 cents a dog on dollar dog night -- with the understood up charge for each desired condiment.

At least the Cleveland owner was better looking.

Agree-

The more money the Nut makes, the better for the Pirates.

It is certainly better for MLB if the Yankees are champs so absolutely we should trade him to the Yanks.
