Cue the panic about how they're going to play these guys over younger players.

Top 15 prospects by fangraphs

When I started researching the club, I underestimated just how good the Pirates system is right now. It has impressive high-ceiling talent at the top of the list and depth. I had five or six other players outside the Top 15 that I really wanted to write about, but ultimately they fell just short of the list.

Bob Nutting says he expects the Pirates to make the 2013 playoffs.

I'd like to hear Neal Huntington put it on the record, what his metrics project for 2013 since he said last year's team overachieved when it was 16 games over .500 and eventually fell to another losing season.

At 33, I think he is just a body for AAA

I don't even think he got an invite to st... I'm shocked his acquisition warrants any discussion at all

He definitely drinks the Koolaid. Can't believe he still lets Nutting and NH trick him into it every year.

Clint Hurdle has been extended through 2014 with an option for 2015. Hopefully he's figured out a way to keep his brain from leaking out of ears by August.

I'm fine with it. Despite the collapses overall he's overachieved with the talent he's had. I wouldn't really want him to be a "free-agent" at the end of this season, and it's not like it was some huge extension...

Meh, not entirely sure the Pirates could do any better at the moment.

Certainly undeserving. He needs to show something this year. He should be on thin ice.

I don't like it one bit.

This is a Pittsburgh board, you don't need to be so flamboyant with your Pirate pride, we're all on the same side.

listen, we pay attention to every game.. of course you won't agree with every decision, but I think some of the anti-hurdle here is over the top.

Pre-Hurdle.. 57 wins

First year ..72 wins
Second year.. 79 wins

They do have to address the complete late season collapses though. Back to back years of nearly everyone completely falling apart (besides late season additions D. Lee / Wandy) makes me think there might be something with the training staff... I was really hoping that'd be addressed in some way, its getting to the point it can't just be a coincidence

It took me like 5 years of posting here to learn that this rule actually applied to all threads. :pop:
