Do you believe you guys would be contenders this year if you didn't keep selling off your young talent?

Xavier Nady
Nyger Morgan
Jason Bay
Jack Wilson
Freddy Sanchez
Adam LaRoche

That's a real good 2/3 of a line up right there.

Edit: I mean NL Central contenders. Not WS contenders.

No. They had that team for 2/3 of last season and look where they were.

The only trade I don't like from that list is the Bay trade. They didn't get much for him. They did get Andy LaRoche and he is starting to come around, but he won't be here in Pittsburgh for long once Alvarez is here.

Nady, they got Tabata and I think this kid will be real. Morgan they got Milledge and hopefully he will turn it around. Wilson, got Clement, LaRoche I couldn't care less what they got for him. And with Sanchez, they'll get good prospects.
I know what you're thinking. We're in the middle of a city, what's a hawk doing there?
