Both Ritchie and Silverio must have ‘pictures’ of NH and Clint.

Good luck with that baserunning improvement. How long has Silverio been on the job? They’ve gotten worse. Replace him.

Regardless of his background it’s great to see his stats. Do the Pirates have one of the best pitching coaches in the game? Shame they’re bare at the hitting coach position.
McDonald is off to a great start. It’s hard to believe he’s 27 with the amount of time he’s spent in the big leagues. Hopefully, he’ll get extended as Tim suggested, in due time.
