Gamecast ruled that an error on Barmes?

I think we know which one is the real JMac by now. Seems like it's almost time to move on from this bum.

Its up and down the organization. Who was the last pitcher we produced that was worth anything?

Hitting
Pitching
Base Running
Holding Runners/Preventing Steals
Fielding
Throwing

What exactly do they coach well? Not seeing any of it being developed well.

Thats correct. High throw by Barmes, Jones could have caught it, but it would have pulled him off the bag.

Pat Lackey ‏@whygavs 1m
When a guy loses 5 mph on his fastball and has abandoned his slider, there's probably something pretty seriously wrong with him.


Not to mention the lack of control. If I'm the Pirates I go ahead and schedule the Tommy John surgery w/Dr. Andrews.

Not much longer, especially if the Fort keeps being a catalyst.

I think I would have been happier with a McKenry/Sanchez platoon, with McKenry getting most of the starts in the beginning of the year and us finally getting to see what our 4th pick in the draft many years ago has. Unfortunately, Sanchez is platooning in Indianapolis instead.

How many runs do the Pirates have to fall behind for Hurdle to let Morris pitch?

It's really too bad these runs are going to be wasted from the atrocious starting pitching by JMac.
