Signs of hope....

Post by Az Bucco fan »

.....I must say that despite it being September baseball, I am liking what I see from some of the young hitters.......lately the results really highlight the need for a closer..... 8-) 8-) 8-)

I will see signs of hope when Cherington is fired.

Who would you bring in and when they get here, is Nutting going to spend more money?

What has my attention is Sabol, Endy Rodriguez, and Henry Davis at catcher.
There could be three solid hitting catchers.

Nunez, N. Gonzales, Shackelford, Peguero, Priester, Gorski, + the aforementioned catcher trio all are having decent seasons (Altoona is loaded with talent), I am hoping at least 1/2 of them turn out to be major contributors in a Pirates uniform.

I know that N. Gonzales & Peguero are highly touted, but I'm still a little "wait and see" with them. I'd like to see greater dominance from them. I think that the other players you mention have certainly earned a look next year.

FOR NOW, I'm ok with Cruz staying at SS, but if Peguero takes off, I think then they need to get more serious about moving Cruz to the outfield.

I like Cal MItchell. I'm not sure how much, if any, infield he has ever played. If at all possible, I think I'd like to see him work out at 1B. I think a 1B platoon of Mitchell and Chavis would be an experiment worth exploring.
