Comments on: Winter Leagues Recap: Comeback in Adelaide Falls Short Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

The Bucs were after him for years to play ‘small ball’ because he lacks strength, so its a bit unfair to say the Marlins taught him how to do the little things. I think the light just went on.

Btw, expect this to be a DK column in the near future.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a player bark about his former team though either…
It would be interesting for someone to follow up on what those little things were that helped him, and to follow that up by interviewing coaches from the Pittsburgh system on their position of if they did in fact fail to deliver?
