Cubs v Pirates Tuesday O'flow Pt1

Felt like we needed to get something going

Reds Minor leaguer has 104 stolen bases on the year!!!

5

WOW!! Just incredible to think about that. 104 steals and only 21 CS. He was #48 prospect pre 20112 baseball america http://www.milb.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?t=p_pbp&pid=571740

Pirates at 5th on ESPN's Power rankings

Jon Kruck has them at 5th as well. Nice to get some dap.

Per Twitter: Cutch in the derby for Stanton

15

Im excited and if he does as well as bay we wont have any issues to worry about his swing

Very Cheeky DH question for rule buffs

8

A) I realize this is not a link there wasnt another option B) I realize this is ridiculous but got me to wonder about the rule and is to add a little humor With the DH rule, is it possible to DH for a position player, like a SS named Barmes, and let the pitcher hit? Or is it strictly a DH for P only.

Mark Trumbo

6

Wouldnt he be a great fit for the pirates. A power hitting first basemen? With the Angels having Kendry Morales, if he come back healthy, a big if. Think he could be a trade target for the buccos?

The Blue Jays Stealing Signs at the Rogers center... Allegedly

6

The article talks about a man in the OF right in line with the hitters vision who raises his arms for off speed pitches and doesnt do anything on fastballs. It talks about one team who noticed and yelled at Bautista about it. My bet would be the tigers since they texted granderson. Overall this article makes it look bad that they are stealing signs but the point of they would be winning much more games if they were and they got no hit by verlander in toronto doesnt help the argument that they are.

A top 50+ pitcher for Beltran???

15

I guess thats a luxury with Cain and Lincecum already on the staff. Way too much for the pirates though. I wonder how long their first phone call lasted haha

How do the brewers have 4 more games played at this point in the season?

Do the pirates have any upcoming double headers or what?

Good read about how the hammer has bounced back from his 7.00 era days on the natinals.

The Right handed power bat corner OF we have all been looking for

:). Made you look. But in all seriousness why not give this behemoth a bench spot and let him pinch hit when rosters expand? Maybe not the bucs but anyone. Proves he can still hit the ball far.

Who out of the three pirates plays tonight?

2

Wondering what everyone thought? Hanrahan- MC Hammerhan- I saw 85% chance we see him in a set up role or to come in an blow it by a batter or two. Cutch- 70% I see him coming in for an AB late in the game. 80% defensive sub/pinch runner Correria- 20% Dont see him playing unless its in extras.

Jose F'in Bats 1st Half

5

Just really dove into his stats for the first time in a while. Hes currently hitting AVG .334. He had an OBP over that only two of his season at PIT. So anyone that saw this coming should be A GM. But I cant really remember him on the Pirates because he really didnt do anything but his swing is so smooth, whoever modified his stroke did one hell of a job.
