    Default Nyjer Morgan traded to Brewers

    Boy, with him, Braun and Fielder, it should be a fun time at the ballpark when the Brewers come to town.

    Another reason to hate the Brewers. They just keep adding to the ******bag roster. It's strange that they got rid of Kendall since he fit right in with the ******* Brigade at Bud Selig's backdoor dealing heisted ball club in Milwaukee

    It's pretty funny if you go back and read the quotes about Nyjer from the Nationals GM. He was acting like it was the biggest move in Nationals history and Morgan was the best CF in baseball. Turns out that the two best players in the deal were pretty clearly Hanrahan and Burnett. Burnett is actually part of a closer by committee to start the season and could win the job outright.

    Speaking of botching up and letting talent go, how's Chris Shelton doing?

    No problem.

    I kinda chuckled as well just thinking in general about all of the players that people went absolutely hysterical over us trading or not resigned etc... and what they went on to become.

    Safe to say that the level of arm-chair GM talent over the past 5 years or so hasn't been even as good as Dave Littlefield in the end

    Don't forget to throw Doug Mientkiewicz in that conversation as well. People went nuts when we didn't resign him. News has come down that Jack Wilson will be keeping second base warm for Ackley in Seattle. Turns out his gold glove defense wasn't good enough to beat out no hit Brenden Ryan.

    That's really not fair to Jack Wilson, who was one of the best SS's in the majors for about a decade, is it???? Bash Shelton or Morgan....have fun.....but I would not look like an idiot and bash one of the best player on our team for quite awhile....

    Ya...but it seems certain posters here love to point out the guys we trade, cut, or lost thru Rule 5 Fiascos have "failed" thus making the moves "good ".....I call the BS card with Jack Wilson....
    Tell me if he was in camp TODAY would he be displaced by friggin Cedeno???? HELL NO.....
    So to talk about him as a "has been" is just jerkin off to the Pirates great moves of the last few years.....Hell, Freddie Sanchez hasn't won another batting title since we got rid of him!!!! "Great Move BBUCCOOOSS"!!!!! Lets bash Sean Casey too....he got hurt when he played for us.."HaHaHa...He Sucks"....****, Batista will NEVER hit 50+ home runs again, and he makes "too much money"....Hahjahahaa....the Bucs were smart to get rid of him!!!!! ETC ETC ETC

    You know I just get sick when folks try to gloss over all the bad moves this organization has made, then bash posters like me for being "negative".....I think we should ALL meet in the middle and see that the BBUUCCOOSSS are an organization with alot of problems in the past, and many challanges in the present, and some hope for the future......

    I don't know that Jack Wilson will ever be confused with the best shortstops in the game. He looks better to Pirate fans because before and after him, shortstop has been a black hole. You can tell how highly thought of a player is by the return and how much money you have to include to trade him. Being the best player on that Pirate team, which he wasn't, is like being the stripper closest to being a virgin.
