I like to see Alvarez get hits from LH pitching.

The Pirates are 15th in MLB in runs scored. That's actually competent. Who saw that coming? 5th in MLB in runs allowed.

Just said that earlier today... I think they're actually good

There is a noticeable difference in many facets of the game, like base running, fielding, timely hitting, hitting the ball the other way, striking out less, etc.

This team is much better than last year's team.

Really the only weak links are Hughes, Sanchez, Leyva, and then Barmes and Gomez to an extent.

Let the record show Leyva told Inge to hold up at 3rd with 2 outs and the pitcher on deck... Inge just went anyway

http://www.piratesprospects.com/2013/04 ... s-out.html

In Locke’s first two starts of the year he was throwing a first pitch strike around 50% of the time. In his next two starts he was around 61%, and in his last start he was 76.9%.


Locke may have finally gotten the memo that pitchers who throw strikes and get ahead in the count will succeed.

Is the Jonathan O. Sanchez experiment over?

You would think he'd be designated for assignment when Contreras is activated, and that Jeanshorts would start on Wednesday

I think they bite the bullet and suffer through one more Sanchez start and then dump him for Liriano.

What's the point? Might as well start Gomez, that will be the end result anyway.

Odds are if you start Gomez he won't last past the 3rd inning anyway and then you're going to Mazzaro. You're choosing between STDs at this point.

No way. Liriano will be a welcome addition come May 10th

Russel Martin won NL player of the week. Sanchez to the bullpen and Gomez gets the start Wednesday.

Jovani Gallardo has killed the Pirates in the past but has struggled this year. Something's gotta give.

The Pirates are in Milwaukee, they should just walk to the batter's box holding a beer bottle, really mess with Gallardo's head.

Would have liked more than one run there, but in the past they'd have gotten none in Milwaukee.

Exactly. Has Cutch woken up with that fielder's choice RBI? Time will tell.

Martin's BA is streaking upwards, up to .276 now. He's been fun to watch.
