Anyone else concerned about their starting rotation?
I mean, they cobbled together a good season out of a lot pitchers last year, but I question whether they have the horses to win a 7 game series.

Something tells me the rotation on January 2nd might not be the exact same as the rotation on October 1st. I'm not sure what it is, but i'm leaning towards common sense.

I'm definitely not optimistic about our chances this year, but I also wasn't optimistic last year either.

Considering what the other top farm systems have, it's quite a distinction. In terms of depth, I'd say only the Red Sox can come close to the Pirates' top 10, the Padres look to have a deep system, but don't close to either the Pirates or Sox in terms of high end guys. The cubs and twins are both deeper at high end guys, but they must not be close when you start going 15-20 deep.


Think i migth have been sold on the 2014 Prospect book now.

speaking of the prospect book, some observations:

-Its probably a testament to last years success that luis heredia was listed as the biggest disappointment. he showed up fat and out of shape, but still pitched halfway decent enough once he got back into gear. when you think about how disappointing allie was last year, or t. sanchez was a few years back, it puts things in perspective when all we can be bummed about was a fat teenager.

-williams was a bit negative on bell, mostly because bell didnt put up the same numbers as polonco did at the same age in the same level. it seems unfair to poo poo a good performance because of someone elses great performance.

-Matt Curry, who on the last page we discussed, isnt even in the top 40 prospects for 2014.

-There is a logjam at the lower levels at catcher, which may lead to wyatt mathisen getting moved to third.

-There are few options at all for third base prospects.

There will actually be a Sunday Night ESPN game at PNC this year. It's like the Pirates exist or something.

Pirates - Reds games have to be some of the more anticipated games for 2014.
