He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site.

Minor League Schedule: 4/14/11

    Time great job so far this year, think the website is coming along nicely despite the small blips with server. I know its probably too early to tell but I was wondering if you’ve heard any body talk about the projectable young pitchers and their velocities so far. Maybe down the road a couple months if that would be a small article your considering. Also wondering if you’ll be having a piece on Gerrit Cole anytime soon, hearing some people talk its easy to get excited about the possibility of drafting him. Thanks Tim!

      I just want to point out that John Dreker handles the minor league schedules, and does a great job keeping them updated. Great new feature for the site this year.

      As for the article on the projectable pitchers, that’s something I’m working on for tomorrow. I’ve talked to a few people about this topic over the last few days, and figured now would be a good time to write about it.
