Perhaps the Pirates should promote McGuire straight up to Pittsburgh. Rookie league ball appears to be no challenge so why not see how he can perform in the majors. Who knows, maybe he outhits McKenry.

Great to see McGuire off to an amazing start. Hope that he realizes everything will not come this easy.


I think Pittsburgh is a bit of a stretch at this point in his career. I’d let him go another week or two and if the hitting hasn’t completely dried up, stop about 70 miles south of the Burgh and see how he does against low-A pitchers for a month.


i think he meant 170 miles.

Slappy White

“Stop about 70 miles south of the Burgh”????????

I don’t understand what you mean.

Lee Young

and….on the other hand….there’s Meadows’ slow start.



Love seeing Allie putting it together. Hope this continues for a long time.


Calling Dejesus a defensive replacement is a bit of an oxymoron, no?


Yeah didn’t he use to play SS? I know he had a leg injury that has limited his range so everyday SS is out of the question, but I don’t see how you go from playing SS to being such a butcher that you can’t play any position well.

Lee Young

is he really that bad? I’ve never seen him play defense.


Lee,I HAVE seen DeJesus play,and he isn’t bad defensively at all. He just lost the range and speed to play SS in MLB. I don’t know where all that kind of negative ” crap ” comes from. Bad defensively ,at least to me,are guys like Jim Negrych and Adelberto Santos for examples.
