In honor of the Pirates’ first time in 2nd place in who knows how long, a trade tree that spans from their last World Series winning team to their last division winning team. Two-time Pirates All-Star and batting champion, Bill Madlock. (click to embiggen)
Mad Dog’s rate stats during his seven seasons with the Pirates (.297/.357/.428) reminds me of Freddy Sanchez (.301/.338/.424 in six seasons).
Cecil Espy makes it three weeks in a row that that I’ve made a tree that had the Pirates reacquiring a player that had lost in the rule 5 draft. Maybe its not as rare as I thought.
