Comments on: 2011 Spring Training Battles: 5th Starter Spot Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Brad Lincoln was discussed later, but it was a separate discussion and it seemed like they were looking at him for later in the season. I was surprised that Jeff Karstens was never thrown into the mix by Searage. Not that I really think he should be, I just assumed that the Pirates would throw him out there publicly as a guy who had a shot.
