Comments on: Game 142 Recap: Myers Holds Back Bucs Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Kind of like a Brandon Wood player trying to find a home a few years from now. I put this pick on par with Bullington, who was also paid a big bonus, only to fizzle out in the minor leagues. Pirates have no choice but to offer Derrick Lee a 2 year deal to play first. Other than 20-25 hr’s from McCutchen, they have no power in this lineup…by the way, can Alex Presley play SS?
