Comments on: The Future of the Bullpen Looks Good Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

He hadn’t been overused and he was pitching very well. I guess it was a numbers/options game….

1. Middle Relievers
2. Speedy Defensive-Minded Outfielders
3. High Average Low power infielders.

We could build a team with this profile from the free agent junk heap, waivers, and rule 5 drafts.

I’d love to see us develop some legitimate starting rotation options and some real power hitters at the corner positions.

I have a pretty good feeling about the future of the bullpen, I think Crotta could eventually surprise some people.  I’d rather have most of these guys compared to options like Beimel.
