    What The Indianapolis Infield Should Look Like

    A few weeks ago I previewed the 2011 Indianapolis Indians infield, with a projection of how that lineup would look.  The summary of that projection: C - Jason Jaramillo (Dusty Brown) 1B - Matt Hague 2B - Josh Harrison (Jim Negrych) SS - Pedro Ciriaco (Brian Friday) 3B - Andy Marte DH...

    2011 Altoona Curve Preview: The Infield

    In my preview last week of the 2011 Indianapolis Indians infield, I pointed out this quote by Kyle Stark in the Altoona Mirror: It's possible, Stark said, that the entire starting infield of first baseman Matt Hague, second baseman Jordy Mercer, shortstop Chase d'Arnaud and third baseman Josh Harrison could be back...

    2011 Indianapolis Indians Preview: The Infield

    Back in December I looked at the potential roster crunch that could take place in the Indianapolis Indians' infield in 2011.  With a group of talented young infield prospects making their way up from Altoona, and a group of off-season additions to the organization, there are far more players than available positions....

    Who Could Reach the Majors This Year?

    Owens has a strong chance of arriving in the majors this year. Last year the Pittsburgh Pirates saw the Major League debuts of several young players.  They saw big time prospects like Pedro Alvarez and Jose Tabata reach the majors in mid-season, and stick around.  They also saw a few minor players...

    How Can the Pirates Improve Internally?

    Any time a move is made during the off-season, the same question gets brought up: how does this improve the team for the following season?  The entire off-season is full of this sort of analysis of the following year, usually consisting of a comparison between the team from the end of the...

    The 2011 Indianapolis Infield

    The AAA infield is looking pretty crowded for the 2011 season. Yesterday the Pittsburgh Pirates added Josh Fields on a minor league deal with an invite to Spring Training.  The deal is a smart move to make, as Fields will most likely compete with Andy Marte for a backup corner infield role....

    The Off-Season Additions and the Prospects in the Wings

    What does the two year deal for Diaz say about the ETA for the internal right field options? The Pittsburgh Pirates entered the 2011 off-season with holes at first base, right field, shortstop, and the starting rotation.  So far they have added Lyle Overbay to fill the first base role, Matt Diaz...

    2010 Position Recap: First Base

    Jones was the best option at first base this year, but wasn't good enough to lock down the position for 2011. Yesterday I went over the right field situation, noting that the circumstances didn't change during the 2010 season.  The Pirates started the season with a lot of options, but no lock...

    Altoona Survives Reading Phillies, 3-2

    The crowd of 6,003 on this cool September night were treated to a decent group pitching performance after Derek Hankins went out after 3 shutout innings with an apparent injury.  Mike Colla came in and shut the door on the Reading Phillies, allowing only a 4th inning no-doubt homer.  Colla pitched 4 much needed...
