Comments on: Josh Harrison Has a Chance to Prove He Belongs Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Josh is a good small ball player, this team had a good small ball club when Josh, Chase and Alex were in the lineup, they will never be a power team, power is too expensive and rare, speed is much more plentiful and this team can win with speed.
Note the downhill trend of the team when the speed was removed.
Stats are great, but with minor league players they only tell part of the story.
