2010-06-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)They shoot pirates, don't they? Anything to look forward to with the 2010 Bucs so I don't do the same?
(frank from vegas)
Well, Pedro Alvarez is up, and while he's off to just a 4-for-35 start, he should be good enough to stick in the majors once he gets his bearings. Neil Walker is taking to the majors as well, and that's worth something, too. I'm less optimistic about Jose Tabata and Brad Lincoln, but they're not hopeless. Andrew McCutchen is a damn fine ballplayer and Lastings Milledge is coming around. It's going to get better. Not immediately, but they're on the right track. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Brad Lincoln: back to being a possible rotation mainstay for the Pirates?
(Joel from Washington, DC)
Most definitely. The scouting reports are very impressive. (Kevin Goldstein)
