Brother Buzz, a S.F. Giants acquisition that even you can approve of!

They got Andrew McCutcheon from the Pirates! He had a bit of an off-year offensively last season but at age 31, he still has some gas in the tank if they can sew him up for more than a season.

AND the Giants didn't give up their future to swing the deal!

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported the Pirates will get pitcher Kyle Crick and "one other mid-range prospect" from the Giants. Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle previously reported top prospects Tyler Beede, Chris Shaw and Heliot Ramos were not involved in the trade.

1. LOL, the Giants may just end up with the oldest team this year

Newly signed third baseman, Longoria is 32, now this one at 31.

2. Ownership decided to roll the dice on a 2018 championship rather than rebuild

And why not? The rotation is there and the bullpen is close. They need a lead-off hitter still. Maybe that's a July acquisition ...

3. You're obviously talking about the Giants

because the Pirates are gonna stink up the joint, big time!!! Fans in Pittsburgh must be irate, losing McCutcheon and Gerrit Cole within a week and not much to show in return.

4. I am

Crick was a top prospect with S.F. though. He could be with Pittsburgh for a while.
