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.

    John….who is “TBD”? Is he related to “ZVR”?

    (just kidding….I love these schedule posts)

    • JohnDreker

      In this case, TBD was Daniel Cabrera, wasn’t expecting that. I figured it was Porifirio Lopez making the start. I wish I knew the ETA on ZVR making his 2012 debut

  • Lee Young

    I’m on a wait and see with ZVR. We have some good MLB pitching and some good MiLB prospects. He is not crucial at this point, but it would be nice to see him fulfill his potential.
