For all those clamoring for Pearce to get a shot at playing everyday, here it is. Nice start last night, but for some reason, I still think he was a flash in the pan.

I'm with you. I lost my confidence in him as this year moved along.

Its apparent the Pirates lost trust in him as well, starting Morgan over him. I was cautious last season with the meteoric rise through the system. Guys can have a great year but not increase development. A strong showing in AAA this season would have solidified his chance at oppening with the Pirates next season. But his struggles in AAA have all but diminished his chances. That's why I was a strong contender that Pearce start in AAA this season and not on the ML roster.

Hey, I was actually right about something. Wooo hoooo!!! Thats one point for me. :D

Pearce handles the fastball pretty well but looks really bad on breaking balls. I'm not sure that's something he can learn at this point in his career. That's why I have my doubts about him ever being a successful major leaguer.

Nothing Jobu can't fix. Just ask Pedro Cerrano.
