The Pittsburgh Pirates traded these former Bucs right before they took a major dip in their production on the field
The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded a handful of players throughout their rebuild. While it might be frustrating to see some go, there have been a handful of times that the Pirates traded the player at the right time. The Bucs got the best years from those players, and they haven’t been nearly as good since.
The return for the player is not a factor here. I am only looking at how the player did after the Pirates traded them. So regardless of how good or bad the players were the Pirates received, the only factor here is the player’s performance post-trade.
