As a long time season ticket holder there,I am perfectly aware of the long term goals of the Minor League system,but I sure hated sitting through some of the offensive dreck I saw under the Littlefield regime and it’s aftermath !

I have season tickets behind the visitors dugout with my son and he is anxious for the season to get started.

It doesn’t always translate based on talent. For example, last year West Virginia probably had the best prospects, but had some poor overall results.

This year Bradenton looks to have the best talent, but that doesn’t mean they’ll win the most games. I could see it being Indianapolis again, since their team looks to be built well for that park (pitching and defense).

Of course W-L obviously aren’t particularly a priority in the minors anyway. I’d guess the most fun teams to watch would be WV (with Barnes, Bell, Mathisen, Herrera, Glasnow, and eventually Heredia) and Bradenton (with Polanco, Garcia, Hanson, Osuna, and Kingham).

As I may have told you in the past, I don’t know much about this stuff, but I did get around to see games at 3-4 different levels each of the last three years including MLB.

So here is the question. Would you like to speculate what level will the Pirates or their affiliates win the highest percentage of games?

Last year, it was Indyt. What team will it be in 2013?

I’m glad to see you have the same excitement about the Bradenton team as I do. Why is Barret Barnes starting out in WV instead of Bradenton? Wouldn’t that be nice to see him in CF between Garcia and Polanco?
