    Casey McGehee May Be The Key

    For as much e-ink that was spilled over the trade for A.J. Burnett, plus all of the well-deserved praise for the Andrew McCutchen extension, the most important off-season move for the Pirates may have been the trade for Casey McGehee.  McGehee was obtained for the fungible commodity of a reliever, namely Jose...

    Chris Resop — Starter for 1 day at least

    I chuckled this afternoon when I heard that Chris Resop was "starting" against the Phillies.  It's probably only for 1 inning, as the Pirates want to get relievers work and also hide Jeff Karstens from his opening weekend opponents for strategy, but it still made me think of our interview from Piratefest...

    Pirates and Phillies need to talk

    With the Phillies searching for middle infield backups, thanks to injuries to Chase Utley, Placido Polanco, and current utility infielder Michael Martinez, it may pay for GM Neal Huntington to lob a phone call to GM Ruben Amaro, Jr. The Pirates made a bold, yet subtle at the same time, statement this...

    Pirate City Observations – 3/20/12

    Today my friends and I took in the major league team's at McKechnie against the Rays, but I wanted to also talk about our visit to Pirate City in the morning to see the minor leaguers. Unfortunately for us (me), most of the key Low A/High A guys like Taillon, ZVR, Cain,...

    Taking In A Game at McKechnie Field

    Today was our first day at Spring Training after arriving from Pittsburgh this morning. I'm down with 2 die-hard Pirates fans, one is a casual follower of the minors and the other is just focused on the major league team. But both are true Pirates fans, which makes the event interesting. I'm...

    Heading to Spring Training

    Tomorrow morning I leave for Bradenton, Florida on my way to Pirates' Spring Training.  If my math is correct, I'll be the 4th member of the Pirates Prospects crew down there.  I believe that will entitle us to a bulk discount at Mixon's. I'll be heading down with two "day job" work...

    Don’t Sleep On Justin Wilson

    It may not be right out of Spring Training, but at some point this season I expect Justin Wilson to be firmly entrenched in the Pirates' major league bullpen. Quick re-cap -- Wilson was a 5th round pick from the 2008 draft.  He was a hero as a starter for Fresno State in...

    Walker Next In Line?

    With word that Neal Huntington is hard at work on his checklist by signing Andrew McCutchen to his long term deal, attention should turn to the next most logical extension candidate on the team -- Neil Walker. Walker's journey through the Pirates' system has been well-documented.  Much e-ink has been spilled over...
