The 2023 MLB Trade Deadline has come and gone, and several Pittsburgh Pirates caem and went as well in the madness. Rum Butner Radio is here to break it all down!
With playoff expansion and general parody across major league baseball this season it appeared to be yet again a favorable market for sellers like the Pittsburgh Pirates. Several teams like the Texas Rangers made it clear they were going all in this deadline to make a push for the AL crown.
Headline moves did take place prior to August 1st’s infamous deadline hour, but overall the Pirates do not make any trades that would be in the realm of blockbuster.
On this Rum Bunter Radio special the crew breaks down the big day and the moves Pittsburgh settled on with Philadelphia, San Diego and Texas.
Should the club have moved more? Was the return appropriate for the trades that were made?
Batten down the hatches, clear the decks and enjoy this episode of Rum Bunter Radio!
