If the Pirates want to contend, the next week is a good time to show it

The Pirates trail the Brewers, who finished the first half on an 8-2 run, in the standings by seven games. They are 11/2 games back of the Cardinals. If the players are going to convince the front office to add before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, this is the week to do so: They have seven games at home against the Cards and Brewers.

Ron Cook: Pirates should have tried harder to trade for Jose Quintana

Although Neal Huntington won’t rule out trading anyone before the July 31 deadline, he has said he really isn’t interested in moving Andrew McCutchen and/or Gerrit Cole because he believes they will give the Pirates a better chance to succeed next season. I’m right there with Huntington on that. I’m already thinking about 2018 because I don’t have a lot of faith in these Pirates rebounding from their poor first half. They will take a 42-47 record into their home game Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals and trail first-place Milwaukee by 7 games.
