Over-all an outstanding game. Glad that one was on TV and i'll bet they were too.

For me the names today were Morton, Chulk, Crosby, Young, Milledge, Cutch, and for their little action Alvarez and Tabata.

Crosby was looking like a starter. He's really having a great start as a Pirate. May soon be the ss or shortly after season opening. I think without injury, he may be the find of the off season. Here's hoping.

Is Crosby's defense good enough to be an everyday player at SS? With Duke and Maholm in the rotation, and with Morton and Ohlendorf dealing two-seamers as well, a plus defensive SS is critical to the Pirates.

In 2008, Crosby had the 4th highest zone rating at SS in the AL, behind Michael Young, Derek Jeter and Orlando Cabrera.

In 2009, he did not play SS. He played 3rd and 1st. It is unlikely he can start 135 games at SS.

I like Crosby as a bench guy, who can fill in at SS. I just do not see him as a starter at SS, however. The fact that he can outhit the likely starter is more of a referendum on the starter.

In 2009, Crosby was essentially playing hurt, with his back injuries.
