By: Tim Williams Wed, 29 Sep 2010 18:20:00 +0000 Ohlendorf isn’t on my list. Ohlendorf’s offense is on my list.

The rest of the list, they deserve their “accolades”. They certainly did their part to tank our season.

As we can see the Pirates have a lot of interesting Prospects that are going to push for playing time on this team by the time 2013 rolls around, now i believe some or maybe a decent amount of these prospects will be moved for pieces to help make this team a true contender, even starting with this off-season. But i definitely like what I’m seeing with the depth in the minors and the projections…Neal Huntington in my opinion deserves a contract extension all this talk about firing him is ludicrous to me.
