If you have a few minutes to spare, please complete a Pirates entry for Tom Tango’s Fans Scouting Report. This is a very helpful tool, but it only works with a large sample of entries. I believe the Pirates are generally one of the least represented teams and, while they are in the middle of the pack so far this year, every additional opinion helps. Please take a few minutes and contribute some of your Pirates expertise.
Earlier in the season, I took a stab at breaking down the Pirates’ unusual outfield alignments. About a week after writing that article, I set out to gather some additional data.

When FanHouse baseball writer Ed Price posted some interesting rookie stats on his Twitter feed this afternoon, I thought it might be a good idea to take a closer look at Walker’s chances.
