pirates bullpen




I think Neal has done another great job in building the bullpen. Clint Hurdle asked for 2 left handed relievers and he got them with Wil Ledezma and Aaron Thompson. We could also see Danny Moskos make the team out of spring training.  He also has the option of Scott Olsen. As we stand right now, the bullpen consists of:

Closer: Meek or Hanrahan

Setup: Meek or Hanrahan

Middle reliever: Chris Resop

Middle reliever: Jose Ascanio/Thompson

Middle reliever: Kevin Hart/ Ledezma/Chris Leroux?

Long reliever: Jeff Karstens

Long reliever: Fernando Nieve/ Brad Lincoln/ Charlie Morton/ Scott Olsen

I would not be surprised if I saw the pirates get Gregg or Fuentes to be the closer and Meek and Hanrahan fall back a spot. It did work last year, so i wouldn't mind it. I think I read something at Rumbunter saying that Daniel McCutchen is gone. I have not heard anything and i would be sad to see him go as he was terrific in the bullpen.
