I think that a lot of out of town Pirate fans have something against Neil Walker because he is so loved. He is the hometown kid but he has also produced big time since he’s been here in a big way. So no he doesn’t get thrown under the Bus like Barmes because he is a proven hitter for the Pirates Yes he has struggled a bit this year but He was hitting in the 270′s when he got hurt and was hitting the ball well enough to be hitting in the 290′s he had a ton of hard outs. Even Bob Walk said the same thing. Now he comes off the D.L and he struggles and everyone is ready to give up on him. Well the last two days so far he is 4 for 6 with a Homer half way through today’s game. Tim should know as much as anybody he will produce, He always does. When he is healthy he is a top 5 2nd basemen in baseball and I’m glad we have him.
