Dripping Springs ,TX? Sounds downright impotent. Didn't Roaring Springs, TX have any good prospects?


Roaring Springs, PA is close to where I live...Of course they make paper


Here's a few other towns that the Pirates should send scouts to:

    Looneyville, Texas
    Wetwang, Yorkshire, England
    Whiskey Dick Mountain, Washington
    Hookersville, West Virginia
    Hell, Michigan
    Toad Suck, Arkansas
    Middlefart, Denmark
    Shitterton, Dorset, England
    Disappointment, Kentucky

Ok. I'm done hijacking this thread now. As you were....

Apparently some are thinking this is a good strategy:

Johnathon Mayo from MLB.com via Twitter: "Hate to keep tooting the Pirates #mlbdraft horn, but Den Dekker was supposed to go along time ago. They are clearly executing their plan."

He also says: "Wondering what the Pirates were doing when taking Sanchez in #mlbdraft? Look at all the HS pitching they're going after; aggressive so far."

I'm not saying I'm on board but they have a strategy and they are executing it.

The reach of the Nutting empire is truly impressive. His apologists are everywhere!

Well, we all know what scout is responsible for this pick. Read this article. The money quote:

His oldest son, Brian, is a scout for the Pirates.

Sorry, counselor, you lack standing. I don't see your name in the draft pool. :P

Hey, I have some eligibility left. I am just a tad older than Randy Johnson, and could get hitting tips from Julio Franco!!
