As a clutch hitter, his OPS with 2 outs and a runner in scoring position was .973 – Avg of .304/.407 OBP/.566 Slg. Nice to have a pinch hitter like that. Of the 14/12 doubles/HR last year, 12/11 came in the first 4 months of the year. I guess my question would be do we think Josh Harrison can do better? McDonald covers the middle infield, and Inge is a hard-nosed former Catcher who is a great influence in the clubhouse. Hurdle is looking for guidance from both of these veterans.

Anyone…..? He literally couldn’t have played any worse

Inge though does beef up the all time Pirate list of guys with a last name starting with I. In fact, this is the golden age, seeing that Izturis wasn’t that long ago.
