    Ehh, not as good of a trade as I hoped. We gave up Christian Arroyo, our #1 prospect (even though he was cock blocked behind Brandon Crawford) to essentially get a hitter who appears to be on the decline to play third, and to get rid of Denard Span.

    And fuck, I just realized Longoria still has 5 years left on his 100 million 6 year contract. Wonder how much cash Tampa kicked us as well for Arroyo and two low level pitching prospects.

    Man the Longoria trade seems like an L for both sides. By the tail end of his contract the Giants will probably be pretty heavily overpaying, meanwhile seems like most Tampa Bay fans are contemplating suicide.

    Arbitration time. Some have already settled. Here are a few highlights

    Josh Donaldson: 1 year, 23 million. I'm sure Machado is sending him a Thank you card in preparation for his contract negotiation next winter.
    Charlie Blackmon: 1 year, 14 million.
    Patrick Corbin: 1 year, 7.5 million.

    Also Mets signed Jay Bruce for 3 year, 39 million. Rumor also of Gerrit Cole being traded to Houston

    Machado settles for 16 million, 1 year.
    Kris Bryant sets a record for first year arbitration eligible for 10.85 million.

    It happened, pirates getting fleeced in the deal. Got some long relievers and "prospects" that aren't even in the MLB top 100

    Giants traded for McCutchen. No clue what we have up but if we sign him to an extension, I’ll be pissed. We just traded the third worst center fielder last year based on DRS for one who was tied for worst at -50.....

    A reliever and a prospect. Basically you got him for a can of tomatoes. Bob Nutting continuing to say fuck you to Pirates fans.

    Defensively in center field, yes. Hopefully the Giants will be smart, stick him in a corner and get someone under 28 to patrol center field. Offensively last year was a bounceback year. 2016 he crashed hard and everyone pretty much felt his best days were behind him. If we get 270+ BA, 15-25 home runs, 80ish runs scored, i'll be happy. I'll settle right now for a batting order of Belt, Panik, McCutchen, Posey, Crawford, Pence, 3B, OF, Pitcher

    And I just forgot we picked up a third baseman from the Rays. So have him lead off and move belt down, but yeah that's pretty much the giants starting line up.

    Melena mostly covered it but yeah, he can't play CF anymore so his best case scenario is as a solid corner OF

    McCutchen was never a great defensive player. But he refused to move to a corner slot.

    Yeah. But he's gone from "OK" in CF to one of the worst defensive CF in baseball. His refusal to move only hurt the pirates leverage
