On February 11th, Dejan Kovacevic released his list of the "Top 10 issues facing Pirates this spring." What's the top issue that needs to be resolved in Bradenton according to you?
Steve from The Parrot:
I think the main competition to be settled is between Jose Castillo and Jose Bautista for the available infield position. With Castillo having a lousy 2006 and Bautista showing loads of promise, it will be very interesting to see who gets the most playing time and how open the competition really is. Does Jim Tracy already have his mind made up one way or the other? If the team breaks camp with one decision made, how fast will things change if the winner of the competition gets off to a horrible start? Will an injury to an infielder make the whole experiment pointless?
