2013 Draft

Top 50 prospects are out for next years draft. Appel leading the way again, at 9 and 14, if things fall as they are, we would add an OF and LHP. Although the top HS SS is ranked at 15

So what means more to you?

With the off day, I can say the Pirates currently sit at 60-44. Leaving us with 58 games in the 2012 regular season. With all attention being given to wildcard and playoff scenarios I wanted to...

Using Spot Starters

1

Can someone make a bit more sense of this for me. The Pirates have no days off for 20 days, so they are going to use some spot starters. Now regardless of how many games you play in a row, typically your starters still get the same amount of rest....so wouldn't you want more arms in the pen, not in the rotation?

BA Pre Season Draft Prospects 2012

21

Pirates Prospects are speculating that Roache sounds like our guy with the lack of power in the system. Personally I'm hoping for a SS or for Appel to waiver a bit this season and fall nicely to us at 8.

Pirates still to make offer on Cespedes

22

Still looks like we may make a bid for him. Though is highly unlikely he signs with us, the idea that we have been following him closely may make any reasonable offer from us more attractive.

We Should Be GMs

16

Never been to this site before but MLBTR had it linked. I gave it a click and found this gem in the comments: "Anonymous said... It seems like the pirates dont have a real plan. They just go out & sign below ave MLB players. Remember joe Randa, derek bell, even the sps from last year. Barnes is in the same mold. He is a piece you add finalize a playoff caliber team not move you from 70 wins to 75 wins. They need to evaluate minor league talent better on other teams and sign a few better free agents to trade at the deadline. They should try the oakland approach. What they have been doing for the pastn19 years is not working. If you don't change the input you get the same output."
