Morning Report: The Pirates’ System Has the Best Pitching Staff in...

The Pittsburgh Pirates have the best pitching staff in baseball, though it’s not the big league club. The Altoona Curve have got some great pitching this season, especially from their starters.

First Pitch: Positional Depth Leads to Some Roster Crunches in Indianapolis

Organizational depth is a great thing for preparation for injuries at the Major League level. However, it is not always the best thing for getting prospects needed reps to allow them to grow and develop. Indianapolis has a few of these situations. First, is the recently publicized log jam at the catcher position with up-and-coming […]

As far as minor league pitchers go for the Pirates, it doesn’t get much bigger than the two going tonight.

First Pitch: Jim Benedict Has Been a Busy Guy in Extended...

I spent a lot of time the last two days covering extended Spring Training, focusing mostly on the upper level guys who only project to be there for a short amount of time. Today I had articles looking at three different pitchers in three different circumstances, all with the same underlying trend — Jim Benedict was […]

Morning Report: Could Deibinson Romero Actually Be as Good as Predicted?

The early results from Romero have been great with a 1.149 OPS that easily leads the International League. In fact, second place in the league […]

First Pitch: How to Handle the Struggling Pirates Bullpen

The start of a season magnifies everything. If a player does well, the hopes for that player skyrocket. If a player struggles, the panic sets in.
