Five no hit innings against Buffalo. Four Ks, one walk, 51 pitches so far. Things are looking up for the pitching staff.

If there is a AAA team that can't hit it is the Bisons.

Looks like Dan McCutchen gave up a HR in the bottom of the 7th. Indy 9 Bisons 1

No HR- three measly singles and a walk accounte for the 2 runs. He pitched 7 innings total. i agree, AZ- the lineup didn't look too potent.

Cutch 2 pitched a good game. He is plagued by HR's at Indy, which is no bandbox, but in his road starts, he has given up just 2 in 34 innings.

Speaking of minor league pitchers acquired in controversial transactions, guess who has an ERA of 2.61 over his past 7 starts in AA?

Blasphemy. I'm guessing He Who Shall Not Be Named!

The funny thing is most people would say that picking Moskos over Weiters was far more egregious than picking Sanchez over Crow or Matzek. But, if my memory is correct, Moskos was pretty much considered a top 10 prospect . . .

I'm hoping for his success not only for the Pirates but for him as well. He seems to be universally hated even though it is not his fault that he was drafted by the Pirates in that slot. I find it ridiculous. Same thing for the morons that booed Andrew McCutchen during his first game.

I agree, No. 9. I feel bad for the kid. It's nice to see him coming around. I'm rooting for him.

Moskos himself deserves no vitriol from Pirates fans, although the comparisons to Wieters will never stop. Littlefield, however, deserves all the criticism in the world for picking Moskos over Wieters. If Moskos ends up as a lights-out pitcher in the majors, that's great, but that does not change the prudence of the pick in 2007.

Couldn't agree more.

Of course it isn't Moskos's fault. But as I remember it he was a relief pitcher, not even a starter, picked ahead of Weiters. I hope he does well but I'll not forget DL for that lousy draft. He wasn't the top pitcher that year, in fact he was not second either.

Moskos was a terrible pick. But Sanchez appears to be a pretty bad one to, but not NEARLY as bad.

How do you know Sanchez is a bad pick? The draft is not all about the 1st pick, its about the entire draft...

Do you think that Chris Duncan is better than Albert Pujols?

Guess which one was taken in the 1st round and the other in the 13th? Which one was from a Junior College?

Your a joke Pujols and Duncan have NO RELEVANCE TO THIS DISCUSSION. I am speaking of the passing of better talent to get a cheaper less talented player with the 4th overall pick.

Both players were drafted in 1999 by the Cardinals Duncan in the 1st round, Pujols in the 13th...

Which is the better talent?

Its an example...Laugh on that

What you say has no relevance to anything. Im arguing the Pirates should have drafted the best player available.

I don't think so, No. 9. I seem to remember reading that Moskos was the 7th best left handed pitcher available when he was chosen.
