Ferrall On The Bench Weekly Rewind 8/1-8/5

The Pirates have built up some equity with their fans after 20 miserable years, making the playoffs the last three seasons. Even though they haven’t advanced in the postseason, (just making the playoffs) changed a lot of the attitudes here in Pittsburgh. But this is the type of trade – the Francisco Liriano trade that they made with literally one minute to go before the 4 o’clock deadline – this is the type of trade that I think has stigmatized the Pirates over the years and really feeds into the stereotype that they’re an organization that thinks money first and winning second. They’ve done a lot over the last few years to do their best to have that feeling maybe evaporate or go away. But a lot of those residual ill feelings toward this team really came to the forefront with this trade.”

They’re just going to keep teasing us. They’re just going to keep pretending that they’re interested in L.A., and nothing’s ever going to happen.”

“He had such a superior postseason and the last two games – Von Miller had 11 sacks in 16 games. It’s a nice total, but it’s not a $70 million total. Then he played well against Pittsburgh, then he wrecked New England and he wrecked Carolina and he’s the MVP and he’s on Dancing with the Stars and he’s doing everything.”
