2022 DRAFT LOTTERY / MARBLE RACE CHAMPIONS


NevermoreSEA

Damn. Pirates have all the luck.


SiphenPrax

Can the Knicks get some of that luck one day pls?


Kind_Bullfrog_4073

not so fast they havent even won their division yet


reddituseerr12

What are the chances you guys don’t take Crews? I need hope


ogminlo

Bob Nutting: “Lesson learned, tank forever!”


penguins2946

Me when I thought the Pirates would fall in the draft lottery: I hate the draft lottery When the Pirates win the draft lottery: WTF I love the draft lottery


NontransferableApe

You should know pittsburgh has lottery luck


OisinKaliszewski

Drafting Crosby was all skill


JustPitchIt

We won something!


OisinKaliszewski

We gonna win the Marbles too don't you worry.


McElwaine

Crewsssssss


penguins2946

Crews is such a no brainer to take: 1. It will fuck with other announcers when the Pirates have both Cruz and Crews 2. Reynolds is leaving and the Pirates have no top OF prospects to replace him From what I remember, this draft has 2 terrific prospects at the top (Dollander and Crews) that both fill needs for the Pirates, but I really want them to go Crews.


RudeRepair5616

What do you want for Reynolds?


penguins2946

Miller as the centerpiece. Maybe I'd be greedy and ask for Pages and Miller, but Miller is the really important piece.


Mr_Evil_Dr_Porkchop

Pirates should hang a banner next season


BensenJensen

Unless you know a guy that can cut us a deal on a banner, we probably won't have the budget for it.


rbaile28

Banners... flags... aren't those kind of your thing? ...just always assumed you guys would have a flag guy on speed dial


c71score

Pfft, that costs money my AL stocking contemporary.


Problematique_

Our AAA team is Indianapolis, after all.


JadeFaceG

You know I think I like the old format better


ChumCreature

How is this determined again? It’s not by marble race, is it?


Kind_Bullfrog_4073

it should be, would get more viewers


johnnotmark

I’ll take this


Jason82929

Raise the jolly roger!


MasterThespian

Whoever the Buccos pick will join Jeff King, Kris Benson, Bryan Bullington, and Gerrit Cole in the Pittsburgh Pirates 1st Overall Club.


Joshduman

You missed Henry Davis.


MasterThespian

Forgot about him! The others are memorable for being really bad (Bullington), really good (Cole), really average (King, career OPS+ of 99, with an 80-grade mustache), and having a hot/insane wife (Benson). Davis hasn’t really made his mark yet.


Joshduman

The 90s and 00s GMs were honestly on a whole other level of incompetent, its wild.


mrboozer

Loved Jeff King. I remember his sweet mustache as a kid.


ZordonsTorso

My flair on /r/buccos is literally "Jeff King's Mustache." That thing *was* the Pirates to me growing up.


timberwolvesguy

Tbh I think the Twins won most. Led the division for most of the year, fell out with major injuries in September, and end up with a top 5 pick. Major W


Tedimon

Inverse timberwolves lottery luck


timberwolvesguy

Hey we did move up to get Ant lol


Joshduman

Definitely. Did you see the Twins scout when he got skipped? They guy had the biggest grin on his face.


timberwolvesguy

I didn’t! I need the video


Astrallevel

LOL


KingKomma05

RIP A’s fans


tripled_dirgov

Good for the chosen one, Pirates have good farm system... The problem is making the player stay there after the debut...


RedTeamGo_

That’s the problem?


slicebishybosh

Boy I wonder what team that pick will end on when he hits free agency.


Problematique_

I want to be mad but it's hard to argue with facts.


Dont_make_this_hard

Pittsburg winning a draft lottery, where have I heard this before?


urriola35

This lottery is so stupid.


RedTeamGo_

As a Reds fan I’m about done with baseball. The franchise is a dumpster fire. They lose 100 games for only the 3rd time in franchise history and end up with the 7th pick. The ownership group has traded every veteran player except Votto and Moose, because they are untradeable at this point, and is slashing the payroll like the team is a mattress store going out of business. I have been a die hard Reds fan for 34 years (I am 39), I am really struggling to pay attention to the team at this point. Just really really sad. It’s the only word I have at this point to describe it. Sad.


Jux_

*I'm in danger*


IAmABot45

Oh no wonder they’re a top 5 team


OlliMaattaIsA2xChamp

Finally, we're #1!


[deleted]

He’s gonna want out in 4 years


BeginningAnalyst595

Good for them


KozyHank99

BART


Scarcelli63

Buccoosssss!


hungrytiredandbored

Really thought we had this one, we were given better odds than we're used to.


BigPoppaPuff

13th? The hell? How many teams were tanking last season? I guess we ended the season. 16-6 or something obnoxious and probably lost like mad lotto position.


DanTreview

It's fucken rigged against Oakland. Congrats, Pittsburgh
