Chris does not want the Bryan Reynolds deal to happen, citing his age as his biggest reason against it. Chris said he is their best asset as a trade chip. He wants the Pirates to pay all of their young guys in hopes they get a bargain deal. He thinks Reynolds going out there and doing his thing to draw a trade return would be the best thing that could happen this season.

Why can’t the Pirates model themselves after the Cleveland Guardians? They are locking up big-time players and competing for playoff spots year after year. How far apart are the Pirates to a deal with Bryan Reynolds? Chris brought up memories of Barry Bonds leaving in free agency. What would be a fair deal for Reynolds and do you want to see it happen?
