Re: 2021 MLB Draft - Keith Law Top 5 (The Athletic)

A catcher is an interesting position to look at. No doubt it is very valuable and is hard to find a catcher that can hit. I still would lean towards one of the arms or Lawlor. But again, we have to trust Cherington. So far, he has earned it.

Ranking the first round picks

So, I decided to look back at the 1st round picks for the Pirates since 2000 since the draft is next month. I ranked my top 10 and my bottom 5. Agree? Disagree? BEST 10. Paul Maholm -(tie) No. 8 pick in 2003 (77-100, 4.30 ERA, 1.405) - Made 273 MLB appearances. Proof if you are a lefty pitcher you c...

Re: Trade returns looking very good for Cherington so far.

That's what you do when you rebuild. Accumulate as much young talent as possible and hope some become big-time players.

Thanks for the review.

Re: 2021 MLB Draft ESPN Mock - Pirates take Jordan Lawlar

If they take Lawlor, so be it. Could end being a stud. But it's very hard to pass on a quality college pitcher.

Lots of comparisons to Bobby Witt Jr who was also taken out of HS and is the No. 7 prospect in the MLB pipeline. He was taken 2nd overall by Kansas City.

Re: Mutch Keller?! WTF?!

He is very frustrating. I think you just have to keep throwing him out there the rest of the season and see if he can figure out. We aren't winning anything anyway.

One thing hasn't changed...

Umpires still blow. It's amazing the stuff these guys miss. In today's game, fricken interference not called and it ended up costing the Pirates a run. Very frustrating that MLB has never addressed the incompetence.
