Nyjer Morgan Quotes and Moments

      I have to admit that when he was struggling in Spring Training I was one of the people who wanted Nyjer Morgan nowhere near the Bucco's lineup.  Please forgive me, Nyjer.  I was...

Trade Ian Snell?

First of all I'm not really sure what we can get for a guy with a crappy attitude who leads the NL in walks and losses AND our minor league system isn't exactly teeming over with SP.  At this...

Pedro Alvarez highlight reel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERqN7WSr5rc   Just because it's been a while for anyone who doesn't live in Lynchburg.  I know it's old but come on, who doesn't want to watch Pedro Alvarez be...

Pirates and Mariners discuss trading SS

  According to MLBTradeRumors via Geoff Baker the Pirates and Mariners are discussing trading Jack for Yuniesky Betancourt.  Jack is FAR better defensively as is covered in the article.  The...

Could we actually trade away starting pitching?

I think that in any other year this would have been laughable.  However, all of our pitchers are relatively young and pitching well under Kerrigan.  Our Starters have actually been our strength...

Miguel Angel Sano

Here are some more links to Miguel Angel Sano, the 15 YO Dominican Shortstop that Dejan mentioned today.  They reference his talk about the Pirates being in the mix as well as other articles. ...

Krasnick ESPN Bucs article

Alex Boone - A steal as UFA?

I am really interested by our behemoth of a UFA signee Alex Boone from Ohio State.  He appears to be an absolute Mauler in an NFL body who wasn’t drafted due to his off the field concerns. He is...

BA Prep Catchers Article and Jake Fox

Disclaimer:  I'm in favor of keeping Doumit at catcher and don't want management to panic and do anything stupid.    That being said there's been talk about if the Bucs should look at catchers...

'09 Pirates = '08 Twins?

This team looks a lot like last years Twins team to me.  That's a good thing by the way.  I'd be happy to have a season like they did last year. 1. Young starters pitching out of their minds,...

Van Slyke Q and A

Andy Van Slyke did a Q and A with Baseball Prospectus if anyone wants to check it out.  Pretty interesting stuff.  At the end he is asked about the state of the game and IMO sort of shoehorns his...

The all Ned Colleti Gave up on them team

I thought this article was funny and relevant considering Young is on it, and Andy anyone from the Bay trade may end up qualifying in the future.  Some of the moves were pretty rational...

Value of a bench

I know everyone, myself included was a little underwhelmed by the Pirates free agent acquisitions. However I think we've seen already seen how valuable they are. Aside from just bringing veteran...

Drafftek Mock

The latest Drafttek simulation has a draft for the 49ers that I'd be pretty happy with.  They rate most of the picks (that they think we'll make) pretty well as "value" as opposed to "reach." ...

I wouldn't break anything in my house if we took Mark Sanchez

Disclaimer:  I am not saying if it were up to me I would take a QB at 10, because I'd prefer we didn't.  I'm just saying that I wouldn't freak out about it.  While it isn't going to be a huge...

2005 Draft - What ifs

Some people, including a Jets blog linked to on the site, are comparing this draft and Stafford to Smith and the 2005 draft, where a QB was forced as a #1 pick because the team picking 1st was in...

2008 Picks after Balmer

I realize this is really just pouring salt on the wound but I can't help watching Balmer do nothing and think who could be taking his roster spot right now.  Given our current draft needs I...

Bucs on TV

I know I'm not the only one, but I am getting really anxious to see a spring training game on TV.  Does anyone know the first one that will be broadcast or do I have to wait until they play the...

Roy Williams

The Cowboys just released Roy Williams which is obviously a big addition to the Safety market.   I know he can be a liability in pass coverage, but I think he would be an upgrade over Roman. ...

Marvin Harrison?

I'm sure he'll want to go to a team in need of receivers that can win now (Philly) but does anyone think Marvin Harrison could be a good fit given our young receivers and the success we had with...

2009 Draft

I know the season hasn't even started yet, but is it ever too early?   We pick 4th and the top 2 pitchers should be gone.  I'm usually more of a fan of proven college stars and was thinking...

SPIKE?!?!?

Does anybody else disagree to spike the ball with so much time on the clock and waste a down??  I love Singletary and hope he is back, but I would have preferred a 4th and long with the clock...
