Letter to the editor: Rebuilding the Pirates
I’d like to add my opinion to the suggestions on how to rebuild the Pirates.
The GM and all the coaching staff should go! Josh Bell should bring interest from an American League team as a DH. He is too clumsy and slow as a position player.
The following players should be kept as a foundation for the new Pirates: Frazier, Marte, Newman, Reynolds, Keller, Moran, Osuna, Musgrove.
Catching has been terrible; surely someone young is available. Diaz couldn’t catch a ball in a bushel basket.
Pitching coach Ray Searage is laughable; the Pirates are down 11-0 in the third inning, and he continues to talk through his fingers. Hey Ray, the opposition has already figured out your pitching staff!
The announcers should go, too; why can’t they just call the game without all the drivel rooting for the home team? Thank heavens Steve Blass is retiring; loved him as a pitcher, boring as an announcer.
Just my opinion. Don’t get mad, please!
