DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Also, looking at the Pirates current rotation, how badly does Taillon getting hurt suck for them? If he was up and pitching well, the Pirates are a playoff team.
(Dave from Boston)
It's not quite that simple, but yes, it does hurt. There's no doubt that they'd rather have Taillon pitching than Jeff Locke, Brandon Cumpton or Vance Worley. That said, it's been their lack of offense (before Polanco arrived) and their previously sharp bullpen that have hurt them this year. You can't make definitive statements like that about a prospect and a team making the playoffs. They're just not factual. (Jeff Moore)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Brandon Cumpton and what kind of 2014 he'll have?
(Steve from Pittsburgh)
I wouldn't expect an extended run of the same type of performance you saw in Pittsburgh, as I think most would admit that was a little beyond his long-term capability. I like Cumpton, but more in the realm of a #4 starter than anything else. (Mark Anderson)
