    First Pitch: Taking the Jordy Mercer Approach With Tony Sanchez

    The one thing we can take away from the Jordy Mercer situation is that the Pirates plan to have him as the primary shortstop in 2014, or at least the top candidate for the job. We hope that’s the situation. Otherwise it really makes no sense to get Mercer adjusted to the...

    First Pitch: The Pirates Should…But the Pirates Will…

    I was talking with David Todd on Twitter earlier today, discussing the potential Jordy Mercer move.

    First Pitch: Who Wants to Hit a Left-Hander?

    The Pittsburgh Pirates have a problem. The team has four spots on the field which could require a platoon, due to the fact that they have so many players who can’t hit left-handers. The obvious player is Garrett Jones, who is established as a platoon player at this point. In his career,...

    First Pitch: Should Travis Snider Be Starting Against Left-Handers?

    It’s a question I get often: Why isn’t Travis Snider starting against left-handers? Sometimes it’s straight up.
