First Pitch: The New Draft Slotting Rules Seem to Be Working

I’ve never been a fan of the new draft rules. I liked the old system where teams could spend whatever they wanted. I think if teams are allowed to spend whatever they want in free agency, then they should be able to spend whatever they want in the draft. I also never bought in to the fear that the Yankees and Red Sox could someday decide to pour all of their resources in the draft and out-spend the Pirates. The draft isn’t...

It just means when the game was over I only knew the Pirates...

2013 GCL Pirates Season Preview

The GCL Pirates started their 2013 season today, losing 6-4 to the GCL Yankees. In the past we’ve had limited reports on the GCL guys. Most of those reports have come from pre-draft or pre-international signing talks, analyzing stats, or just the limited times we’ve seen the teams. In the past few years Wilbur Miller has seen the GCL team during the season a few times, and I’ve seen them for a few games, but the...
