Pirates Sign Jimmy Rider

  • I love this! I loved watching him with Kent State in the tournament. Hopefully he can do something!

  • Another Kent State product!

    Why do the pirates have approx 10 fewer drafties signed than any other mlb team?

    • They don’t need a lot of the organizational guys that are usually taken in the later rounds.

      • Tim: Why the logjam with No. 4 and No. 8? I realize what is going on with Appel, and doubt that he will sign this year. Should the Pirates just allow Appel to decline the $2.9 mil for slot, and put all of their efforts into signing Buehler? They have $600K to play with and that could sign 4, 8, and 14, and take the 9th pick in 2013(for not being able to sign Appel).
