Comments on: All-Star Andrew McCutchen Supplies Power for 4-2 Pirates Victory Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system. Sun, 16 Nov 2014 11:52:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: James Santelli Sun, 14 Jul 2013 08:02:39 +0000 Everyone said that, but two notes on that:
1. As much as the bench is struggling, all of the pinch-hitting has been over fewer than 100 plate appearances. Such a sample size doesn’t really give one indication of future success.
2. Do you really think A.J. Burnett bunting is a better option there than Travis Snider? I certainly do not.

Have you looked at the Bucs bench ecently? Hurdle probably figured AJ had the best chance in that AB than of any of his other options. He may have been right too.

Let’s go Bucs!
