Cutch to be on cover of MLB The Show 13

2

Huh. I didn't even know there was a contest . Didn't see anyone on here mention it, heh. Additional Cutch quote: "I am humbled and thrilled that you, the fans, have voted me as the cover athlete for MLB 13: The Show. It really is a dream come true for me to be on the cover of a video game, but even more, I wanted this for Pittsburgh, a city that has supported us through some rough times. You deserved this. Seeing how the fans came out in full force for this all week long overwhelmed me. You voted non-stop at all hours of the day, and I cannot thank enough for that kind of support. Many of you lost Twitter followers, deprived yourselves of sleep and spent every free moment of your day voting on Twitter and Facebook. #MLB13Cutch became more than a hashtag - it became a movement. I owe that to all of you. This vote showed me the sense of pride that the people of Pittsburgh have, along with all the other fans that supported me. I cannot express enough how appreciative I am of your support, and how thankful I am that you chose me for this. I can only promise all of you that I am going to continue to work my hardest to prove that you made the right choice and help bring the World Series trophy back to Pittsburgh. Thank you. Cutch"

Current Pirates Player Finally Being Released As McFarlane SportsPick

10

I'm well aware that nobody else might give a crap about this, but personally I have been waiting for them to release a current Pirate in this line for, well let's see now, about 31 series, which I believe is over 10 years at this point. So I am sufficiently excited and have absolutely preordered one.

I had great seats last night, first row behind the Pirates dugout, so I took a bunch of pictures and made a little highlights video. You can see the pictures in my album here.

FanGraphs: The Game: Bucs Dugout Edition

I know a decent number of you go to FanGraphs, and I'm sure some heard seen the new game they unveiled yesterday. It's kind of convoluted the way they made it, but I think it could out to be pretty...

Fangraphs Position Power Rankings - Pirates Exclusive

All right so Fangraphs had a series of posts over the last week rankings teams by position. Unsurprisingly the Pirates didn't do so well, having only two positions in the top ten and having several...

Why are you a Pirates fan?

Right now the Pirates are in a bit of a unique situation. No other team and fanbase has really had to endure anything like what they have had to endure the past 18 years. Which leads me to the...

An addition to: "The # 1 pick in historical perspective "

Basically I wanted to list the fWAR of all the #1 picks, minus the players drafted in the last few years. I was going to just post this as a reply in that thread, but the lack of formatting made it...

Fangraphs writer wants to punish certain teams by relegating them to the minor leagues

12

This...look, last year at one point someone on a random message board had much the same idea and was shot down pretty unanimously. Personally I thought it was absolutely insane. But now we an actual contributor for Fangraphs coming up with what is essentially the same idea. It absolutely boggles my mind.

Sidney Crosby's Historic Season

Nice article on Hockey Prospectus about Crosby's season so far.

Rocco DeMaro was fired by Clear Channel today

Ugggggggh. There goes pretty much the only intelligent Pirates discussion on the radio. I would love to just not listen to the Pirates on the radio until they hopefully change stations, but sometimes that's just not possible for me. I think their deal with 104.7 is up after this year, and I just hope to god that they will sign a deal with another station. EDIT: Oh, awesome, a minute after I post this they take his page down. Real classy you effing bastards.

Fangraphs Top 100 Prospects

1

Because everyone needs more top 100 prospects lists. Probably the best for the Pirates I've seen, they actually have 4 players on this one; Pedro Alvarez at #10, Brad Lincoln at #54, Tony Sanchez at #60 and Jose Tabata at #93. I wonder if I did this right because it's not like I can preview it!
