Probably any fan of any organization that has an Endy Rodriguez in their system is giddy thinking of the possibilities ahead and I’m forced to dread what is going to happen to this apparent special talent in this organization.

The Pirate MiLB group has been strong, and a lot of raw talent has already moved to MLB, but the Pirates definitely need to find a new voice as the Manager. It may not be all Shelton’s fault, but a change has to be made, and made now.

IMO, they already have a much better Manager sitting there as the Bench Coach, Don Kelly. Local boy who fought to get to the majors and played 7 or 8 years. Well respected as a prime managerial candidate in MLB circles.


You mean the same organization that has developed him into this “special talent”??


If I was religious I would say God developed this special talent however his second year in the Mets organization is when he started taking off.


He played a total of 66 games in that organization, but I guess we should give ALL the credit to those 31 games and 125 PAs in rookie ball. I wish developing “special talent” was that easy LOL


Jonny six pack dwells in negativity.

Glad to see Hunter Owen resurface.


Couldn’t agree with you more Wilbur is Burrows hurt or did they shut him down


Think hes out with R shoulder inflammation

I think they’re ultra-cautious with him, which is fine.

I’ll be happy to see the last of Eickhoff. Don’t know why they couldn’t bring up Mlod for a start, or let Eckelman try the new knuckler in AAA.
