Long story short is that Niese has been terrible. He has already been taken out of the rotation and could be dfa'd before too long. In a candid interview Pirates GM Neil Huntington said the trade has been a disaster. He said that options were limited trading Neil Walker in that the return could have either been low profile prospects or low upside veterans. Huntington said they took the gamble on getting someone who could help right away, but it backfired. The ebs and flows of being a major league GM....
Of the actual cards the Marte is my favorite!
The Perspective cards were really cool. Very Stadium Club esque.. Reprint or not Clemente cards are always awesome. He would be a shoe in for the Mt. Rushmore of cardboard. Right up there with Bob Walk!!
Thanks for all the great cards. I'll be sure to come up with something to send back your way soon. As for everyone else please give Peter's blog a follow.
By the way Peter I'm going to start sending you to Pirate games as you have a much better track record. I'm freaking 1-6 this year.
Thanks for reading!
