Comments on: Altoona Wins on a Strong Start From Brandon Cumpton Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system. Sat, 15 Nov 2014 21:37:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: James S Fri, 27 Apr 2012 21:47:00 +0000 He pitched into the eighth!!! Miracle of miracles!
Hey, any pitcher who can pitch through the sixth inning in this organization is a gem. Most of them are lucky to make it through five. These starters today are such pussies. In every era before the 90’s, even the worst pitchers would get you 10 complete games in a season, now it’s a miracle if the league leader has 10.
And there are just as many arm injuries today, if not more. It is BECAUSE of their low stamina and endurance that injuries occur now, if you ask me.

Nice writeup.

I’m coming out May 5 for the DH. Can’t wait to see the ‘Coaster again.
