Jeff Locke 7/31/10 Video Recap

If you’ve been reading this site for any amount of time, you probably know about the “Jeff Locke curse”.  In 2009, it seemed like every time I saw Jeff pitch, he had a bad outing.  That’s probably because he only had bad outings when I was in attendance.  You can see a few of those outings in the video recaps section of the site.  Despite the bad outings, I saw some good things out of Locke, which made me view...

The Pirates’ 2010 draft signings changed the profile of their farm system in a hurry.  Earlier in the season, the system had graduated several top prospects in Pedro Alvarez, Jose Tabata and Brad Lincoln, as well as Neil Walker, who’s suddenly re-emerged as one of the organization’s best young talents.  We’ve each taken a look, in the form of top ten prospect lists, at how the system stands now.

Altoona got on...
